The Menlo School girls wrapped up the first half of the West Bay Athletic League (Foothill Division) tennis season with a 6-1 victory over visiting Sacred Heart Prep on Tuesday. The Knights moved to 5-0 (11-4 overall) while the Gators suffered their first league loss and are now 4-1 (12-3).
Menlo is shooting for a 19th straight league title under coach Bill Shine and stretched its league dual-match win streak to 213 straight since 1994. That's an ongoing state record. The Knights' only loss came at No. 1 singles where freshman Sarah Choy upended defending Central Coast Section singles champ Elizabeth Yao, 7-6 (5), 6-0. Menlo swept the remaining matches in straight sets, losing only a combined 11 games.
