The Gunn girls had a downright forgettable tennis season a year ago as they went winless in the SCVAL De Anza Division and were dropped into the SCVAL El Camino Division for 2015. The Titans, however, are much improved this season with four new players holding down the singles spots and displayed that new talent on Wednesday with a 4-3 nonleague victory over host Palo Alto. Julia Pham, Anna Yu, Olivia Aspegren and Yarden Gaffan are all new to the Gunn program, but swept the top four singles spots in straight sets against the Vikings (1-2), who swept the doubles. Gunn was competitive in doubles, as well, with all three matches featuring a tiebreaker.
