On March 6, the Carlmont boys tennis team suffered a 5-2 loss to Menlo-Atherton.

However, the score did not tell the whole story.

In a singles match, Thomas Reznik, a junior, defeated his opponent before the match could be completed because the Menlo-Atherton player withdrew because he was not feeling well. This led to Carlmont picking up one of their two points on the day.

Reznik said, “I think it went pretty well, I made my shots, and I played my best, but he called it.”

On the adjacent court, a fierce doubles match was taking place. It was between Kevin Xiang, a junior and freshman Ben Barde who were playing two formidable Menlo-Atherton opponents. Xiang and Barde won the first set but lost two close back-to-back sets which gave Menlo-Atherton a point.

Xiang said, “Overall, I feel like we had a good chance. It was a really good game; the skill levels between the two teams were very close. Unfortunately, we lost in a tie-break, but the next time around, we will be able to get ’em.”

Barde said, “I think we did well; we kind of died out in the end though.”

Carlmont head coach Dan Nguyen said, “[We are] doing great, Menlo-Atherton is a really tough team year in and year out, but we have taken two points today… We look forward to playing Menlo-Atherton every year because we always get good competition.”

We definitely have high hopes and big goals for this year.”

Nguyen said, “The season is going great; we have a really good team this year with a lot of really solid players.”

The Scots players were also optimistic about their play and the team have high hopes about their season.

Reznik said, “I think our season is going pretty well… we have to keep it going and get to CCS.”

Xiang shared Reznik’s optimism but still acknowledged that there was still work to be done: “We are warming it up still… but we have potential for the rest of the season.”

Although this outcome was not what the Scots were hoping for, they’re going out for their next game on March 7 at San Mateo.
