The Keene boys tennis team hosted Hanover in the first round of the NHIAA tournament Thursday, but fell 9-0 to mark the end of the season for the Blackbrids.

“The guys hung tough and showed their characteristic effort and sportsmanship,” said head coach Bill Hay. “Really good kids, and they have time now to work on the structure of their games, then we’ll see how that matches up against the rest of the Division next year.”
