“We are doing very well,” said coach Petro Petreas before last week’s tennis tournament. “We are currently tied for first place.”

In the league competition, Campolindo beat Acalanes 6-3, Dougherty Valley 5-4, Castro Valley 5-4, and Dublin 8-1. Unfortunately, they previously lost to Dougherty Valley with a close score of 4-5 during their first match.

Campo played Miramonte on April 24 but lost 3-6 because, according to Petreas, they were missing their “number one player, Maks Tsvetkov.”  Their game with Miramonte determined the league championship.

“It was very unexpected, but we knew that this year, [Dougherty Valley] would have a strong team. The loss was particularly bitter for me because me and my doubles partner lost in a very close match and if we would have won, the whole team would have won overall,” said senior varsity member Will Howard.

Tsvetkov and freshman Tilden Oliver were huge assets in every match. “[Oliver] has been a new big impact in the team,” said Petreas.

NCS play started on May 4th. The NCS finals are on the 12th.
