MAPL CHAMPS

2010, 2017

NJ PREP CHAMPIONS

2010

Girls’ tennis has been a popular sport at Blair, and we have had much success over the past decade, including Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) and New Jersey state prep “A” championships in 2010.

Our season begins in late August with a rigorous—but fun—pre-season camp for varsity candidates, designed to improve stamina and build team unity. Regular-season practices last for approximately two hours after school and include conditioning, drills, use of a ball machine, videotaping of strokes and match play. Our practices and matches take place in Blair’s modern and well-designed tennis complex, which features nine Deco-Turf II courts. These courts have the same surface as the courts on which the U.S. Open is contested.

We play a challenging schedule of 17-20 dual matches, competing against MAPL rivals Peddie, Hun, Lawrenceville, Hill and Mercersburg, in addition to taking on some of the toughest teams throughout the state, including Newark Academy and Montclair Kimberley Academy. Our season culminates on Peddie Day when, along with all of Blair’s fall athletic teams, we vie with arch-rival Peddie for the coveted Kelley-Potter Cup.
