For the third consecutive year, the men’s tennis team from the Lawrence Yacht & Country Club captured a league championship, according to team captain Barry Strauss. The Lawrence squad defeated what was described by Strauss as “a strong hamlet team from Jericho,” on Aug. 27 at the Lawrence club. “The points are a fierce competition, and hard won. This is great tennis,” he added. The North Shore league the Lawrence team competes in has 12 teams and is considered extremely competitive. Matches are played from May through August.
