The Palo Alto boys' tennis team evidently means business this season. The Vikings won the California High School Tennis Classic last weekend in Fresno and won its eighth match in nine contests this season with a 7-0 blanking of host St. Francis in a nonleague match at Cuesta Park in Mountain View.

The Vikings (8-1) shifted their lineup around and still had plenty of depth to hand the Lancers their first loss of the season. Paly senior Dan Schwartz moved up a spot into the No. 2 singles position and produced a 6-3, 6-4 victory. Senior Sam Wong won at No. 1 singles as did freshman Nicky Hu at No. 3 and senior Cory McCroskey at No. 4 -- all in straight sets.

Palo Alto has four more league matches before taking off for spring break starting March 21. When the Vikings return, they'll visit Menlo on April 1 in an important nonleague match between two of the top contenders for Central Coast Section honors this season.
