The Palo Alto High School boys’ tennis team fell to Saratoga High Schoo– the top team in the league–7-0 at home on Tuesday, March 15th.

Doubles team Hunter North (‘18) and Jerry Hong (‘17) fell to their opponents 6-1 in the first set, and put up a fight in their second set, still came up short 7-6.

Kevin Chen and Ethan Teo fought hard as well, closely ending their game with losses of 6-4 and 6-3.

The only victorious set for Paly was pulled out by doubles team Adam Love (‘19) and Anthony Georgiatis (‘19), who won their first set 7-5, yet lost their second 6-1.

Love reflects on the overall play of the team and his partner, staying positive despite the loss.

“I thought today went fine, the team played well… my partner Anthony played very well.”

Although Love did contribute to the winning set, he says he still has to improve on some things for the next game.

“I’m gonna try to be more consistent, get my serves stronger… but we had really good competition.”

Both singles players Noah Galper (‘17) and Drew Embersist (‘16) lost both of their sets 6-0.

Adrian Smith (‘17) lost 6-4 in his first set and 6-1 in his second, while Henry Badger (‘17) also could not get a win in his first set 6-2, and once more in his second set with a score of 6-0.

Coach Andy Harader has the same positive outlook on the match.

“The score was very lopsided but I thought the boys played very well, I am very happy.”

The team was also missing three usually crucial players: Carl Goodfriend (‘16), Shiv Matta (‘16), and Dylan Polley (‘17).

Harader credits the loss to the absence of these boys as well, but still thinks they did a good job overall, considering the competition.

“We played against the top team in our league… I’m proud of our performance.”

The boys’ varsity tennis team will play Milpitas at 3:30 at home on Wednesday, March 16th.
