Varsity Boys Tennis
Menlo-Atherton 4, Gunn 3
Date of competition: Friday, March 20, 2009
In a rain-delayed makeup match, the Menlo-Atherton boys' tennis team earned a hard-fought 4-3 nonleague victory on Firday. Historically, these teams have been involved in close matches and this one was no different. The Bears came away with the victory following a three-set triumph at No. 4 singles.
M-A jumped out to a surprisingly quick early lead, winning the first three singles matches in record time. With the Bears having easily taken the first set in two of the other matches, the win for the Bears seemed secure until Gunn battled back and threatened to steal the win away.
