The following is a synopsis of the 2013 Belfast Area High School. boys tennis team:

Coach/years coached current team: Keith Holland, first year.

Last year's record/playoff information: 7-5, ninth in Eastern Class B. The Lions lost to No. 8 Presque Isle 3-2 in a preliminary playoff.

Roster: Seniors Gabe Alex, Tyler Martin, Dakota Wing, Kenan Mahmic and Pietari Turunen; juniors Hendrik Andrews, Tae Sung Yun, Logan Mitchell and David Flood; sophomores Tanner Luther; and freshman Leander Andrews.

Outlook: The Lions have a solid mixture of seniors and juniors competing for the majority of the spots on the playing ladder, while underclassmen Luther and Leander Andrews "are developing week to week."

Coach Holland said the goals for the team are for the Lions to improve in each practice and match and to be competitive throughout the season. He added he expects Camden Hills and Waterville to be among the league's top teams, though all of Belfast's opponents will be "worthy competitors."
