On Friday, February 26 the Norsemen boys tennis team defeated El Capitan 16-2 at Valhalla. The boys showed superiority throughout their matches easily defeating the Vaqueros, showing determination and coming back from sets that started off slowly.

The boys #1 singles player senior, Greg Miller, swept all his matches. His serves tend to take out the opponent before they even have a chance to get their heads in the game. Miller is a third year returning varsity starter, who is expected to carry his team throughout the season.

The other two singles players, senior, Arturo Martinez and freshman, Saul Martinez were also able to stay strong throughout their sets and aid the Norsemen in their overall victory over the Vaqueros.

Saul Martinez, as a freshmen, could potentially end up like his teammate Greg Miller as he showed much potential throughout his sets, defeating El Capitan’s #1 singles starter.

The #1 doubles team seniors, Adam Ellestead and Omar Ortuño, and #2 doubles team seniors, Ramsen Jebo and Sebastian Kalasho, also played strongly, with coach Ackerly making an executive decision to substitute sophomore, Jake Ibbetson and senior, Brandon Pola in as his #3 doubles players. All the doubles partners persevered throughout their games and demonstrated potential that will carry the Norsemen throughout their season.

IMG_7256“Each player gave a solid effort and showed that we have reason to believe in our chances every match,” said head coach Ackerly after being asked on his opinion for the upcoming boys season.

Come support your Norsemen at their next home game Thursday, March 3 versus West Hills at 3:30.
