Playing its most inspirational match of the season, the West Brunswick boys’ tennis team lost 5-4 March 30 at Class 3-A rival White Oak.
West was missing two starters because of ailments.
“We put our best possible lineup and got terrific performances,” West coach Bob Bell said.
White Oak won the match by winning two of the three doubles’ matches.
“Before the match I told the team we had to have everyone’s best effort to have even a chance of winning,” he said.
