Tennis: CHS Boys Take First Win of Season Against Mira Mesa, 16-2

Last Thursday, the Islander Boys’ Varsity Tennis team traveled to Mira Mesa High School to play their first league match of the season. With rain all of last week, the team had not practiced all week, but bounced right back with their first win of the season. While Coronado has strong players in both doubles in singles, the doubles lineup for the Islanders completely swept Mira Mesa’s. At Line 1 Doubles, Jake Lamb/Andres de la Lama gave only one game to the Marauders’ Line 1 and gave only two points to their Line 3. Mira Mesa defaulted the last set. Santiago Gonzalez/Chris Fisher took all three of their sets: 6-2 against their Line 2, 6-1 against their Line 1, and 6-0 against their Line 3. Nathaniel Nelson/Nick Rios (Line 3) took their first win of the season against Mira Mesa’s Line 3 Doubles, 7-5. After this close match, they swept the rest, 6-4 (against Line 1) and 6-2 (against Line 2).

On the singles side, sophomore Eric Kats (Line 1) won both of his sets in bagels (6-0) against the Mauraders’ Line 1 and Line 3 Singles. Senior Alan Corrales was then subbed in for Kats to play their Line 2 Singles, also taking his first win of the season at 6-0. Sophomores Jorge Yañez and Isaac del Rincon each won two of their three sets, and both fell to Mira Mesa’s Line 1. As these were the only two sets dropped, Coronado took quite a marginal victory of 16-2, their first win of the season.

The tennis team currently holds a Western League record of 1 win to no losses and a season record of 1 win to three losses.
