The U.S. Tennis Association’s Long Island Region recognized several area residents, including New York State’s top male and female high school singles players, for their tennis playing or volunteer achievements.
Syosset’s Josh Levine was a New York State and Nassau County Boys’ Singles Champ at Cold Spring Harbor High School. This was Levine’s second consecutive year winning the New York State championship. Peggy Gluck and Nadine Netter won the Women’s 60s Doubles Eastern, and Flo Levine was the Adult Volunteer of the Year.
Woodbury’s Matthew Bahar won the Boys’16 championship for L.I., and Syosset High School’s Vivien Cheng was a New York State Girls’ Singles Champion.
The group was honored at the USTA Long Island Region’s 23rd Annual Awards Dinner, which recognizes superior efforts both on and off the tennis court.
With more than 9,000 members, the L.I. Region is the official home of tennis in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The Region promotes the growth and development of Long Island tennis and supports USTA programs, including Jr. Team Tennis, National Junior Tennis and Learning, High School Tennis, College Tennis, USTA 10 and Under Tennis, USTA League Tennis, and community tennis.
