Varsity Boys Tennis
Menlo-Atherton 4, Carlmont 3
Date of competition: Tuesday, April 5, 2011
The Menlo-Atherton boys' tennis team nearly saw its perfect record in the PAL Bay Division blow away, but the Bears overcame blustery winds and Carlmont's homecourt advantage to pull out a hard-fought 4-3 victory on Tuesday. The Bears (10-0, 12-2) won three of the four singles, but Richie Sarwal (No. 2) and Nick Fratt (No. 3) both had to battle back from first-set losses to post victories. The Bears' No. 1 doubles team of brothers Jesse and Christian Perkins remained unbeaten this season with a 6-0, 6-3 victory to help clinch the victory.
