In a tug-of-war match that stretched out more than three hours, the Menlo School girls tennis team dropped a 4-3 nonleague decision to visiting St. Francis on Thursday. The Knights (2-3 overall) were playing their first of two nonleague matches against top Central Coast Section teams. The Lancers were CCS quarterfinalists last year. Menlo will host , and the the Knights play host to defending CCS and NorCal champion Monta Vista on Tuesday.

"This could have gone either way, it was really close," Menlo coach Bill Shine said. "It's not bad losing to a good team at this point in the season. That might make them come back even hungrier."

Elizabeth Yao, a senior, won in straight sets at No. 1 singles as did sophomore Georgia Anderson at No. 4 for Menlo. Juniors Melissa Tran and Schuyler Tilney-Volk picked up a win at No. 2 doubles.
