In singles, Taft won 3 matches, and Wasco won 3 matches; so, the score after singles was tied 3-3. Taft received strong singles play from Brian Rivera, Tyler Nguyen, and Antonio Guzman. Rodolfo Magana, and Luis Moncada each lost their match in a third set tie-breaker – Bryson Ginn also lost his singles match.

The Taft doubles teams each won their matches in straight sets.  Magana and Nguyen won 6-1, 6-3 at #1 doubles. Rivera and Ginn won 6-4,6-3 at #2 doubles. German Mejia and Marvin Gama won 6-2, 6-3 at #3 doubles.

Taft finished its league season at Arvin on Thursday. The S.S.L. Individual Championships are at Wasco next Tuesday and Wednesday.
