Senior Johann Dias played boys’ single number one in the Cavs’ match away against Golden Sierra on April 21. 

“That’s a huge strength for us,” coach Jamie Nelson said.

Dias won, 6-1, 6-3.

Sophomore Nico Burns, who played boys’ singles number two, won his first set, 7-5, at the tiebreaker and won the final set, 6-2.

“(Nico) started off shakily, but he put it together,” Nelson said.

Freshman Jacqueline Chao and sophomore Zihao Sui, the only girls able to play their match, lost, 3-10.

As there weren’t enough Golden Sierra players, forfeits meant wins for senior Nathan Chan, junior Christian Van Vleck and sophomore Lily Brown.

The Cavs will next play in the league singles on Tuesday, April 25, at Rio Del Oro.
