Thomas Pellegrino has been a key figure in the Warren boys tennis team’s dream season. Last week, Pellegrino helped the unbeaten Dragons sweep the District 10 Class AA postseason titles.
On May 9, he teamed up with Matt Sandberg to win the D-10 Class AA doubles title. The duo rallied to beat Fairview’s top team of R.J. Petrella and Andres Flores in three tough sets, 5-7, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4, in the finals.
On Friday in the Class AA team tournament, Pellegrino added a 7-4, 6-4 victory over Mario Picciotto at No. 2 singles in the Dragons’ 4-1 semifinal win over Kennedy Catholic.
Pellegrino then claimed a crucial victory in Warren’s historic 3-2 victory over Fairview in the title match. He beat Flores 7-6, 6-0 to help the Dragons secure their first D-10 team title.
