CMS Stags Tennis won two convincing opening day matches behind the strong showing of three players making their Stags Tennis debuts. Freshmen Lestter Yeh (Arcadia, CA) and Skyler Butts (Santa Ana, CA [pictured right]), and sophomore Joe Dorn (Washington D.C.) each won two matches to pace CMS in an 8-1 win against Arizona Christian and a 9-0 victory over Brandeis.

Yeh partnered Zhenya Pereverzin (Jr. - Clackamas, OR) for an 8-1 win at #1 doubles against ACU, and then returned to win at #6 singles against Brandeis. Both of Butts' matches were against Brandeis, winning at #3 doubles with Stags captain Neel Kotrappa (Jr. La Verne, CA) and then 6-2, 6-2 at #3 singles. Dorn partnered sophomore Warren Wood (Del Mar, CA) at #1 doubles against Brandeis, then earned a tough two set win at #2 singles.

CMS returns to action tomorrow at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center against #15 Bates at 9:30 AM and against #6 Vanguard at 3:00 PM
