Palo Alto moved to within a victory of qualifying for the Central Coast Section championship tennis match and earning an automatic berth into the NorCal Tournament following a 5-2 quarterfinal victory over visiting Aptos on Monday in the boys' section team tourney. The third-seeded Vikings (21-3) earned a shot at No. 2 Bellarmine (21-1) in Wednesday's semifinals at Courtside Tennis Club in Los Gatos at 2 p.m.

Palo Alto's two best singles players, Sam Wong and Baramee Wongbanchai, were beaten at No. 1 and 2, respectively, but the rest of the lineup picked it up. Freshman Nicky Hu won at No. 3 singles and senior Dan Schwartz also swept his No. 4 match to equalize things. In doubles, Palo Alto swept No. 6 Aptos (19-3) away in straight sets.
