CAL CLASSIC – MEN’S VARSITY TENNIS RESULTS – O’DOWD 2-0-1

March 8, 2016

RECORD: 2-1-0 WACC, 4-2-1 OVERALL

TOURNAMENT MVP: Graham WIlliams/Camron Castro – Our Senior doubles team went 3-0 including a pair of 3 set wins. They showed nerves of steel as TWO team matches came down to their court. In the second match v Milpitas, Williams/Castro were down 0-6 and 5-9 in the tiebreaker before roaring back to win the final 6 points and the match. Amazing tennis from our two team captains.

TOURNAMENT SUMMARY: O’Dowd won the first match 6-0 vs Immanuel from the Central Valley. Last year we had a tougher time with this school and O’Dowd’s preparation and attitude had a lot to do with this shutout. Our second match was with Milpitas – a team we had tied two years ago. Working around their amazing #1 player Dillon Lam, the Dragons put emphasis on doubles – sweeping all three contests. Nick Riani capped the victory with a victory at #3 singles for a 4-2 win. The final match pitted O’Dowd vs San Luis Obispo for the division title. It was an extremely even battle with four tiebreakers and average match time lasting two hours. Noah Linde pulled out #2 singles in a TB, as did Williams/Castro (#2 dubs) and Jayasuriya/Forth (#3 dubs) . SLO captured #3 singles in a TB, but also won #1 singles and doubles in straight sets. This gave the Tigers a 9-7 set edge to break the 3-3 match deadlock for the title.

All-in-all a great tournament for the Dragons – match experience for our young squad. Lots of fun was had by all even though Saturday was rained out.

TOURNAMENT MVP: Nick Vollintine – Senior JV player went 3-0 for the tournament. His experience paid off as he won with three different partners at #2 doubles.

TOURNAMENT SUMMARY: O’Dowd JV players got some valuable match experience in Fresno. Having won D8 last year, the JV moved up to D7 even though there were only a few returning players. D7 proved to be tough, as many schools fielded only one squad and we faced essentially their Varsity players. El Capitan (Merced) and Valley High (Elk Grove) both had amazing singles players and defeated our JV 4-2 and 5-1 respectively. The Dragons were able to eek out victories in doubles, and enough wins to overcome Delano 3-3 (54-53 games). For our first-year players this tournament is very informative to let them know the sort of commitment and focus they will need to become good players!

Lots of fun was had by all even though Saturday was rained out.
