On the road with First Serve


An update on Bridgeport Central High School Tennis
from Andrew McConnell

There was a terrific outpouring of donations, culminating in a substantial one from Westporters Mike and Becky Goss. Not only were we able to purchase and renovate a van for the team, but First Serve Bridgeport endowed the team with its first annual college scholarship. It was awarded to our girls team captain, Phonsavanh Keophannga, who's currently attending Fairfield University.

In addition, the team was recognized this past season for its achievements. Fellow FCIAC coaches once again awarded the Best Sportsmanship Award to our girls team and I was named Boys Tennis Coach of the Year. Among the coaches voicing support for our team was Staples tennis coach (and former FCIAC Coach of the Year himself) Kris Hrisovulos, who noted our team’s effort, sportsmanship and character. My team and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to compete with the best teams in the state, and more importantly, to allow our players a chance to excel on and off the court through playing tennis.

We welcome your continued support!
