While every match is important by providing new challenges and goals for the team, when the La Jolla Country Day Torreys (10-4) play La Jolla High School, they simply compete to win. Not only does the winner get territorial bragging rights, but a win usually places them among the most elite tennis teams in the San Diego section.

On March 19, the Torreys came out firing. After the first rotation, they went up with a 5-1 lead. The doubles teams and singles players kept picking off sets until they claimed a dominant 12-6 victory.

Singles and doubles contributed equally, providing six sets each. Senior Jack Murphy went 3-3 in singles while senior Alex Khorsandian and his partner, junior David Shaw, swept their doubles sets as well. Freshman Ryan Tran continues to impress, bringing in two sets without losing single game. Sophomore Max Mereles added one more win for the singles lineup. Seniors Gabriel Pamich and Amir Ferry won two doubles sets, while sophomore Andrew Schiffman and freshman Randall Kras contributed one set.

Junior Ethan Krant had this to say after the match: “Having lost to [La Jolla High] in CIF last year, it was a great feeling to come back this year and beat them. I hope to continue these wins against them in the future.”

The Torreys also defeated La Costa Canyon High School on March 20. The team played another great match to beat the Mavericks 11-7, with senior Murphy sweeping all of his singles sets. The Torreys will continue their season after school begins again on April 8.
