The Miramonte boys' tennis team captured its second combined Diablo Foothill Athletic League and North Coast Section Division I team championships in as many years on May 11. The boys completed their NCS championship run with a total record of 27-0, defeating Redwood High School and Monte Vista High School on the final day of the championships.
The final match against Monte Vista was a repeat of last year's NCS final, with both teams returning most of last year's starters. After dropping the first match, the Matadors won the next three matches to pull ahead 3-1. In the next match, senior Andrew Tan and junior Logan Boersma won in a thrilling third set, 7-5. Miramonte went on to win all the remaining matches, winning 6-1 overall. Among those who started on Sunday also include junior Michael O' Melveney, sophomores Bryce Hummer, Sasha Lilichenko, Peter Martin, Kyle Rechnitz, Neil Weikert and freshman Alex Hwang.
Led by East Bay Boy's Coach of the Year Michael McCollom the Mats competed at CIF NorCals from May 17-18. The team lost 3-4 to Serra in the Regional Semifinals.
