Tennis: Moreau Catholic High Schoolâs boys tennis team extended their winning streak to five straight matches, and improved their record to 7-2, with their wins over San Lorenzo and San Leandro, both by 6-1 scores. The Marinersâ No. 1 singles player Derek Lee won his third straight âdouble bagelâ â beating his opponent 6-0, 6-0 â against San Lorenzo. Also victorious for Moreau were singles players Aditya Dharma, Ryan Ma, and the doubles teams of Errol Tongco/Danny Vieira, Karthik Gudipati/Alromil Pacheco and Shahin Marzband/Anthony Doan.
Lee finally lost a game in his next match â but only one; he won his match 6-1, 6-0 against San Leandro. âDerek Lee is on fire,â said Moreau tennis coach Tony Rodriguez. Rodriguez is looking ahead to a matchup with Castro Valley High Schoolâs undefeated Miguel Diaz, which will likely be the HAAL match of the year.
In the Mission Valley Athletic League, Mission San Jose remained undefeated (7-0 overall, 6-0 in the MVAL) with wins over American (by a 5-2 score) and Newark Memorial (by a 7-0 score) high schools. Missionâs winners against American were Sun, Dankeweicz, and the doubles teams of Balgovind/Chiang, Dzoan/Aasur and Narayanam/Ho. American bounced back from their loss with 7-0 wins over Washington and Newark Memorial to improve their record to 5-2. The Eaglesâ singles squad of Huang, Bautista, Tong and Barrett led American to victory in both matchups.
