Vikings Take Tourney Victory: Samohi Tennis Moves to Second Round

SANTA MONICA – The Samohi Vikings did not play their best match of the season, but 10 points is all that is necessary to win.

Samohi beat the Burbank Bulldogs 11-7 in team play in the first round of the CIF Boys’ Tennis Tournament on Wednesday.

No. 1 singles Connor Treacy only played two matches for the Vikings, but won both convincingly, 6-0, 6-0.

No. 2 Cristobal Rivera did well, too, winning all three matches 6-0, 6-1, 6-0.

Burbank got their victories in No. 3 singles, when Samohi’s Charles Villero withdrew from his match with Kevin Lee with a cramp in his calf, and in doubles with two wins out of three matches over Samohi’s No. 1 team of Seby Urtiz and Kellogg Adams.

Samohi coach Wilston Poon said this was a good start for the Vikings in the first round.

Samohi still triumphed in the end and will face West Ranch on the road on Friday.
