The top-seeded Menlo School boys' tennis team kept its perfect season intact with a 15-1 victory over No. 5 R.L. Stevenson on Wednesday in a Central Coast Section Team Tournament semifinal in Atherton. The Knights improved to 24-0 and will face No. 2 Bellarmine (18-1) for the section title on Friday at Courtside Tennis Club in Los Gatos at 12:30 p.m. Bellarmine dispatched No. 6 Saratoga, 11-7, in the other semifinal.

Playing the new three-singles, three-doubles round-robin format, Menlo swept the opening round, 6-0. When Victor Pham and Vikram Chari won their No. 2 doubles match in the second round, 6-1, it was 10-0 and the match was clinched. Menlo coach Bill Shine was then able to sub in some of his non-starters, which resulted in the one loss -- the Knights' first after blanking Mountain View (18-0) and Los Altos (15-0). Menlo's top three singles players -- Andrew Ball, Richard Pham and Justin Chan -- all won twice before sitting out the rest of the warm afternoon.
