DHS doesn’t go quietly at tennis NorCals

From page B1 | May 19, 2013 |

With his team matching up against Serra, the runner-up from the always powerful Central Coast Section, Davis High boys tennis coach Dale Hersch had a simple strategy for Friday’s NorCal quarterfinal match at Gold River Racquet Club:

“The plan was to try and have (No. 1 singles player Glenn Hull) win, then put my best players in doubles and try to get wins there.”

Hull survived a second-set scare to hold up his end of the bargain, Manraj Gill and Louis Pak also won at No. 3 doubles, but that was all the Blue Devils got in a 5-2 decision.

The loss ends the season for DHS, which finished second in the Sac-Joaquin Section tournament.

In beating Serra’s Matt Campana 6-2, 7-6 (3), Hull got one last victory in a storied four-year career, which included a section individual championship in 2012.

“Glenn was cruising, up 4-1 in the second set, but then he lost focus a little bit,” Hersch said. “(Campana) is a good player and he let him back into it, but thank goodness he refocused and closed it out without it getting to a third set.”

The veteran coach also praised all three of his doubles duos for their strong play as Andrew Dumit and Sean Mishra fell, 6-4, 6-4, at No. 1 and team Isaac (Yee and Zhang) pushed its opponents in a 6-3, 7-6 loss. Gill and Pak, meanwhile, used their power in a 7-5, 7-5 victory.

“All three of the doubles matches were pretty even,” Hersch said. “Manraj and Louis are both good hard hitters with big serves and big forehands. They hit the ball hard and they played consistently enough to (win) in two sets.”
