From page B8 | March 12, 2014 |

In what could be the formula for other wins against tough competition this season, the Davis High boys tennis team swept the doubles matches and got some help from singles in a 6-3 win Tuesday at Granite Bay.

Breezing through all three doubles contests in straight sets, the Blue Devils got a 6-0, 6-0 win from Yoshi Wainwright/Cooper Hosley at No. 3 and a 6-2, 6-1 triumph by the No. 2 squad, Jame Cole/Scott Lucio. Victor Li teamed with Jasper Murphy to take down the Grizzlies’ No. 1 duo, 6-3, 6-1.

DHS’ Chase Kellison had similar success in winning his No. 5 singles match 6-0, 6-3, while David Wang edged Granite Bay’s Austin Berry, 6-4, 6-3 at No. 6.

Louis Pak and Bob Li had three-set singles outings, with Pak earning a Devil victory by topping Bradley Chase, 6-3, 5-7, 10-4, at No. 3. Bob Li took GBHS’ No. 4 player the distance in a 3-6, 6-2, 13-11 loss.

Davis is next in action on Monday when Delta Valley Conference play begins with a 3:45 p.m. home match against Monterey Trail.

The Blue Devils still haven’t lost a match as Tuesday’s four-set win at Union Mine moved DHS to 5-0 on the season.

In what has become a typical performance for the locals this season, the Devils started fast, winning the first game 25-16. They then captured the the second set, 25-21, and bounced back from a 23-25 loss in Game 3 to clinch the match with a 25-18 fourth-set victory.

“The boys are just really excited to come out and play and that’s why we’ve been so successful early in matches,” said Davis coach Jordon Friend. “(Tuesday) the boys showed that they are a well-rounded, deep team that doesn’t have to rely on any one player.”

With setter and team captain Evan Meerscheidt under the weather, the Blue Devils turned to junior Dominic Fannijiang and freshman Ron Chandi to fill in. Both players came up big and Friend said he was particularly proud of Fannijiang’s performance.

“Dominic was able to run the offense and play some really good defense (Tuesday),” Friend explained, adding that fellow junior Richard Lu also excelled both offensively and defensively.

Lu posted a team-high 16 digs, while senior Andre Foster led DHS in kills.

The Devils are back on the court Tuesday when they travel to play Oak Ridge, a small but quick squad.

“We played them at a jamboree and they play really fast,” Friend said. “We will be working (Wednesday) on getting our middles to keep up with that kind of fast-paced offense.”
