Frigerio helped the Raiders finish as the fourth seed in District One, one spot behind Conestoga, in the Class AAA team competition. They won their first states match over District 12 champ La Salle before bowing out in a 3-2 decision to District 2 champs Abington Heights, a match where Frigerio won at first singles, 6-1, 6-0.

Making the first-team cut is District One Class AAA doubles champ Steven Yang and Max Howarth of Conestoga, while singles players Matthew Chen and Simon Vernier of PIAA Class AAA team champion Lower Merion round out the first team. Yang, Howarth and Vernier will be competing this weekend in the PIAA Class AAA doubles and singles tournaments, respectively, at Hershey Racquet Club.
