This past week, the Carlmont varsity boys’ tennis team beat Woodside with a final team score of 5-2.

The hot day and quick winds were not enough to discourage the Carlmont team, and they played hard to get their win over Woodside. Their hard work proved to be successful, and the score was the proof.

The doubles teams for the Scots had some intense games with great results.

“Some players were playing in different spots as they normally do and they stepped up to the plate and got the dub,” said Dan Nguyen, the boys’ tennis head coach and Carlmont teacher.

Carlmont was prepared to face off against Woodside and continued their undefeated winning streak of 11-0. Woodside, the team that is fifth best in the league, according to Nguyen, fought hard to defeat Carlmont, but they fell short of victorious.

“They’re solid though. They have a lot of solid players and every year, they’ve never a given a win,” said Nguyen.

“It was pretty good, I kind of had a slow start, but I got the win. I think everyone came out, they were focused, and they took care of business. I think that everyone did their jobs no one was fooling around; everyone was serious about it and [we] got the win,” said Milad Shafaie, a sophomore.

Shafaie, the number two seed for the Carlmont singles, won his match against his Woodside opponent and therefore brought the Scots one step closer to their victory. “It was pretty good, I had a slow start, but I got the win,” Shafaie said.

Another high seed for the Scots is sophomore Ben Barde, who also won his match, 6-3. “[My game went] pretty good, I felt solid today,” Barde said.

“I think the real challenge is Menlo,” said Barde. The game against Menlo-Atherton will be the Carlmont boys’ tennis team’s next game, Friday, April 6.
