Varsity Boys Tennis
Saratoga 4, Gunn 3
Date of competition: Thursday, April 16, 2015
The Gunn boys came up short for the second time this season against Saratoga, dropping another 4-3 tennis decision on Thursday in SCVAL De Anza Division. The Falcons came in as the division leader while the Titans (8-3, 12-6) needed a victory to stay in second place, with one league match remaining next week at Monta Vista. Gunn was coming off a 6-1 nonleague loss to defending CCS champ Menlo School on Wednesday.
"Menlo is much stronger than Saratoga," said Gunn coach Jim Gorman, who faced Menlo's top lineup. "We had a major opportunity to win this. I would say we are very close to them; maybe in CCS."
