Menlo School suffered only three losses in girls tennis last season while winning 26 times. Two of those setbacks were to Monta Vista, once in the Central Coast Section final and the second at the NorCal title match. The Knights, however, have taken steps to avenge those defeats and how have beaten the Matadors twice this season following a 6-1 nonleague triumph on Tuesday.

Menlo did beat Monta Vista in nonleague action last season, and the teams likely will meet again this year when more is riding on the matches. Still, a 7-0 win at the California Classic and Tuesday's 6-1 win gives Menlo coach Bill Shine an idea his team will contend for section and NorCal honors once again. Sisters Elizabeth and Alice Yao won at No. 1 and 2 singles while Georgia Anderson won in a tiebreaker at No. 3. The most encouraging sign, however, was Menlo's sweep in doubles -- all in three sets -- as the Knights ended a three-match losing streak and improved to 3-3.
