A tight nonleague boys’ tennis match between Laguna Beach and Whitney was won by the Wildcats, 10-8 Tuesday (March 3) on the Breakers’ home court.
An injury to Benito Romeo proved to undermine Laguna’s quest for the win.
Romeo, playing at No. 2 singles, injured his back after his first set.
“We could have beaten them had Benito not gotten injured,” Laguna co-head coach Jonee Earl said. “It was a tough blow.”
Laguna did get a sweep at No. 1 doubles from Ben Biscarrat and Jared Berkson. At No. 2 doubles, Noah Michelson and Mikey Rubel won two of three.
