Greenwich’s Cai Jain and Nick O’Brien play first doubles and are undefeated. All of the Cardinals’ doubles teams are unbeaten so far this season for the 14-0 Cardinals.

Entering tomorrow’s home match against Stamford, the Greenwich High School boys tennis team has a record of 14-0 and the unbeaten season has seen all three of its doubles teams win every singles match.

How’s this for perfection? The Cardinals’ three doubles teams are a combined 42-0 on the season, through the team’s 14 matches.

“A pretty incredible group of guys,” Greenwich coach Ray Marschall said.
