It all starts with the serve.

In order to score a point, a tennis player needs to be able to put his serve in play. That can be a lot easier said than done, as was evidenced Monday in the first singles match between Mattituck’s Chris Waggoner and Eastport-South Manor’s Tim Jurgiewicz in Manorville.

It’s not something that is seen every day, an athlete from one team cheering on an athlete from another team, a rival team at that.

But there was Kait Butterfield of the Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School girls track and field team urging on Mattituck’s Melanie Pfennig during a race Tuesday. The two seniors are living proof that rivals can be good friends.
