Date of competition: Thursday, April 1, 2010
The Gunn boys' tennis team finished off its most successful stretch of the season by beating host Monta Vista, 4-3, for the second time this SCVAL De Anza Division season. The rare season sweep of Monta Vista gave the Titans (5-4, 10-6) four victories this week against Sacred Heart Prep, Homestead, Aptos and the Matadors.
This was the closest of the four as Monta Vista took an early lead by winning at No. 2 singles and No. 3 doubles. Gunn closed the gap when Simon Kaubisch and Roy Peleg won at No. 1 doubles, 6-2, 6-4 and Jinyan Jiang won at No. 4 singles, 7-6 (7-4), 6-1. After that, it was a battle. Gunn's Clifton Wolak took three sets to win at No. 3 singles after dropping the opening set and the team of Scott McKenzie and Paul Wang fough back from a second-set loss to pull out a 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 win at No. 2 doubles.
