Depth carries Devils in DVC tennis opener

By From page B1 | March 18, 2014

The Davis High boys tennis team served notice on Monday that even though the Blue Devils are very much a young squad, they will still be able to use their depth to dominate Delta Valley Conference foes.

Hosting Monterey Trail in the league opener for both schools, DHS dropped just two games in sweeping the three doubles matches, and won the No. 3-6 singles contests with similar ease to finished off the Mustangs, 7-2.

Junior James Cole teamed with freshman Cooper Hosley to blank their MTHS opponents, 6-0, 6-0, at No. 2 doubles, while the top Devil duo — Jasper Murphy and Scott Lucio — got past Josh Lynch and Eric Nguyen, 6-0, 6-1.

Freshmen Kyle Qi and Yoshi Wainwright completed Davis’ doubles sweep by posting a 6-1, 6-0 victory over the Mustangs’ No. 3 squad.

In singles, local sophomore Chase Kellison blitzed Aaron Ly, 6-3, 6-1, at No. 3, while classmate Victor Lu cruised past MTHS’ Gerald Jordan, 6-2, 6-2.

Blue Devil junior David Wang had no trouble with Hewitt Chang at No. 5, finishing him off 6-0, 6-0.

DHS split the most competitive matches of the day as senior Daniel Zhu outlasted Justin Vang, 7-5, 6-3 at No. 6 but Tris Dutta dropped a 6-3, 6-3 decision at No. 1.

The Devils continue DVC play on Wednesday as Elk Grove is in town for a 3:45 p.m. match.
