The top-seeded Menlo School boys’ tennis team rolled over Los Altos, 7-0, in the quarterfinals of the Central Coast Section Team Tournament on Monday, paving the way for a semifinal against No. 5 Monta Vista on Wednesday at Courtside Club in Los Gatos. The Matadors (16-4) eliminated No. 4 Leland, 4-3, in another quarterfinal.

The No. 8-seeded Eagles (16-3), who won the California High School Boys Tennis Classic Division II title, could not match the Knights, champions of the Classic Open Division.

With No. 1 singles player David Ball off taking an AP test, Menlo shuffled its lineup and still swept while improving to 23-1. Junior Justin Chan cruised to a 6-1, 6-0 win over Spencer Simonides at the top singles spot. Sophomore Richard Pham defeated Anthony Bello 6-2, 6-3 at No. 2 singles, and senior Andrew Carlisle topped Jared Eng 6-2, 6-1 at the No. 3 spot. Sophomore Daniel Morkovine bolted past Lenoy Avidan 6-0, 6-1 to wrap up the singles.
