The East Hampton High School boys tennis team was to have played a big match here Monday with Half Hollow Hills, whose outcome, East Hampton's coach, Kevin McConville, has said, would likely determine the third seed, behind Commack and Ward Melville, in the coming county team tournament.

East Hampton continued undefeated in league play last Thursday, easily turning back the Ross School here 6-1. Max Astilean won 6-4, 6-0 at first singles, Nick Cooper won 6-2, 6-0 at two, Kiefer Mitchell won 6-1, 6-0 at three, and Armando Rangel, at four, playing "the best he has all season," McConville said, lost in three sets to Gabriel De La Maza, who prevailed 10-8 in the deciding tiebreaker.

The doubles teams swept. Jagger Cohen and Henry Cooper won 6-0, 6-0, Miguel Garcia and Cameron Mitchell won 6-4, 6-4, and Chris Pilarski and Jesse Cohen won 6-1, 6-2.
