The Menlo-Atherton boys' tennis team continued its perfect season by kicking off what could be a busy and successful week with a 5-2 nonleague victory over visiting Sacred Heart Prep on Monday. The Bears improved to 15-0, thanks to a sweep in the doubles.

Zeke Brown and Matt Giordano posted a 6-2, 6-4 victory at No. 1 doubles, twins Jesse and Christian Perkins produced a 6-2, 6-4 win at No. 2 and Matt Menninger teamed with Richie Sarwall at No. 3 for a 6-2, 6-2 victory. Alec Haley and Alden Mitchell also won in straight sets at the top of the singles ladder.

Weather allowing, the Bears will be back on the court Tuesday at Woodside with a chance of clinching a second straight PAL Bay Division regular-season title. M-A is 10-0 in league with a two-match lead over Burlingame with just two to play. The Bears, after visiting Gunn on Wednesday for a nonleague match, will close the regular season on Thursday by hosting Half Moon Bay. By that evening, M-A coaches Tom Sorenson and Carlos Aguilar hope their team will be 18-0.
