CCS boys tennis singles, doubles tournaments open


Menlo School's Bo Leschly and M-A's Tim Berthier were two of several players who withdrew from the Central Coast Section singles tennis tournament, which got underway Tuesday at the Imperial Courts on the campus of Cabrillo College in Aptos.

That left the singles bracket with one player, James Bell of The King's Academy, from the West Bay Athletic League and no one from the Peninsula Athletic League as the league champion from Carlmont also withdrew.

The doubles tournament also had its share of withdrawals, which left Menlo-Atherton's third-seeded duo of Casey Morris and Tyler Ellingson without a first-round match. As late as Monday night, Leland's Edward Jung and Brandon Kim were listed as opponents.

Meanwhile, the Bears' doubles team of Jake Andrew and Camillo Saueressig were part of a reshuffling of the bracket and wound up losing their first-round match to Nathan Fekadu and Aditya of Cupertino, 6-4, 6-1.

The Pioneers duo went on to beat a team from Harker to reach Wednesday's semifinals and are matched against the top-seeded team from St. Ignatius.

Morris and Ellingson did advance into the semifinals after beating Pioneer High's Andrew Tjoa and Nooh Palizi 6-3, 6-1 in Tuesday's quarterfinal round.
