One more victory and the Palo Alto girls' tennis team can exact some revenge. Should that happen, it will accomplish two things in the Central Coast Section team tournament.
The Vikings have lost only three times in 23 matches this season. The two teams responsible for those losses are still playing in the tournament. Should Paly defeat visiting St. Francis on Friday, the Vikings will get the opportunity to avenge one or two of those losses in Monday's semifinals at Courtside Tennis Club in Los Gatos.
Awaiting third-seeded Palo Alto (20-3) is the winner of No. 7 Homestead and No. 2 Saratoga, who meet Friday. Saratoga handed Paly two losses in the SCVAL De Anza Division season, both by 4-3 scores, while Homestead also stung the Vikings (5-2) when Paly was shorthanded.
Thus, one more victory will put the Vikings in position to not only gain revenge but move into the CCS championship match next Wednesday, likely against top-seeded Mitty.
Palo Alto opened section play Wednesday with a 6-1 thumping of visiting Notre Dame-Belmont. It was a pretty routine victory for the Vikings, who shifted their No. 1 doubles team of Sophie Biffar and Gracie Dulik into the No. 3 and 4 singles spots. Dulik suffered the team's only loss on a day when the three winning Paly singles players lost only a total of eight games.
Paly sophomore Janet Liu was outstanding once again with a 6-0, 6-0 victory that kept her undefeated at No. 1 singles this season. Paly's starting lineup Wednesday featured just two seniors, the No. 2 doubles tandem of Vrinda Khanna and Lisa Ke. The Vikings' singles lineup consisted of two sophomores and two juniors.
