The Menlo-Atherton boys' tennis team grabbed control of the PAL Bay Division race with a crucial 4-3 victory over second-place Burlingame on Wednesday in Atherton. The Bears improved to 9-0 in league with three matches remaining while the Panthers lost their second PAL match, both of them to Menlo-Atherton. The Bears can clinch no worse than a tie for the division crown by beating visiting Woodside on Thursday. After that, M-A can wrap things up by beating host Half Moon Bay on Tuesday.

With the match tied on Wednesday, senior George Horowitz came up with the deciding point with nis 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 triumph at No. 2 singles. Junior Alec Haley won at No. 1, 7-6, 6-3. In doubles, the Bears got two key victories from its tandem of freshmen. Twins Christian and Jesse Perkins won at No. 2, 6-3, 6-4, while freshmen Matt Giordano and Zeke Brown registered a 7-6, 6-0 victory at No. 3.
