Varsity Girls Tennis
Palo Alto 4, Mountain View 3
Date of competition: Tuesday, October 14, 2014
the Palo Alto girls maintained their two-match lead in the SCVAL El Camino Division tennis race with a hard-fought 4-3 victory over host Mountain View on Tuesday. As was the case in last week's 4-3 win over Milpitas, the Vikings' No. 1 doubles team of Maddie Lee and Jacki Cai clinched the victory in three sets, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (4) over Jamie Osborne and Michelle Tham. Palo Alto improved to 8-0 in league (11-4 overall) while the Spartans fell to 2-4 (4-9). Should Paly win on Thursday, it can clinch no worse than a title tie next Tuesday with a win at Fremont and then win the title outright by beating visiting Santa Clara on Oct. 23.
