Milpitas tennis duo advances in CCS tourney
By Biff Jones
Senior Vivian Nguyen and sophomore Christi Tain of the Milpitas High School girls tennis team won their first- and second-round matches on Monday, Nov. 22, in Central Coast Section (CCS) doubles play. They defeated Marika Lee and Lauren Liu of Los Altos High School, 6-0, 6-0 before downing Saga Shermis and Eliza Adams of Menlo, 6-2, 6-0 in the quarters.
Originally scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 22, the semifinals and championship rounds were postponed to Monday, Dec. 6, by CCS due to inclement weather, followed by the Thanksgiving holiday. Play on Dec. 6 will start at noon at the Courtside Tennis Club in Los Gatos.
Nguyen and Tain won the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League El Camino Division doubles championship earlier in November and Nguyen is undefeated for 2010. She was the team leader for coach Dong Pham's Trojans.
Nguyen and Tain are the No. 3 seed in the 16-team tournament and will face the No. 2 seed, Ruri Kobayakawa and Wendi Kong of Monta Vista High School in one semi-final. No. 1 seed Stacy Yam and Kennedy Davis of Archbishop Mitty High School take on No. 6 Logan Finnell and Anna Romeka of Stevenson School in Monterey in the other semi.
