While it was only a nonleague match, Palo Alto's 6-1 victory over host Sacred Heart Prep on Monday was very telling for the postseason. The Vikings improved to 16-2, their only losses to SCVAL De Anza Division opponents Saratoga and Homestead by identical 4-3 scores.
Palo Alto once again demonstrated its depth of talent as No. 1 singles player Janet Liu sat out the match with a back problem. Fellow sophomore Emma Marti stepped up and defeated SHP's Anne Robson at No. 1, 6-2, 6-0. Paly, infact, won the top three singles matches as sisters Vrinda and Mira combined to lose only seven games at No. 2 and 3, respectively.
Palo Alto's doubles, which have been a strong point this season, showed that strength again as the teams of Gracie Duluk-Sophie Biffar, Lisa Ke-Margo Gerould and Lauren Mah-Christine Koepnick all won easily in straight sets.
While last week's loss at Homestead knocked the Vikings out of a three-way tie for first place (with Saratoga and Monta Vista), Paly (8-2 in league) has a chance to move back among the leaders in its final four matches -- starting with visiting Los Altos on Tuesday and at Monta Vista on Thursday. Paly concludes the regular season next week, hosting Los Gatos and visiting Saratoga.
Sacred Heart (10-4), returns to West Bay Athletic League action Tuesday by hosting Notre Dame-San Jose at 3:30 p.m. The Gators (5-1 in the Foothill Division) are pointing toward next Thursday's match at unbeaten Menlo (6-0).
