Greenho, Danes are Class S State Tennis Doubles Champions

From left to right, Morgan Greenho celebrates his Class S state doubles tennis victory with coach John Pfeiffer and partner George Danes.

Last Thursday, Lyme-Old Lyme High School senior Morgan Greenho and freshman George Danes won the CIAC Class S boys’ tennis doubles championship at Yale. The pair, who were top seeds, defeated Patrick Markovics and Matthew Newfield of Morgan High School 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

Moment of victory! Morgan Greenho raises his arms in celebration while his doubles partner George Danes gives a thumbs-up sign.

Old Lyme has not won the Class S doubles championship since Dane Pfeiffer and David Neaton’s success in 2003. Dane is the son of the current coach, John Pfeiffer.

Reaching for the sky … or rather the ball!

Sadly, Greenho and Danes lost on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the CIAC State Open at Amity, but despite that, the pair still enjoyed an extraordinarily successful season.

Many congratulations to Morgan and George!
