The Southwest High tennis team narrowly missed going undefeated in the Imperial Valley League after it lost 10-8 to Vincent Memorial in El Centro on Monday.
Southwest still finishes as league champion with a 7-1 mark.
"Even though we lost, I think right now we're right where we ought to be," said Southwest coach Genaro Piniero. "We lost but we still won league. So now we'll just be preparing all week for CIF."
The Eagles' best performance came from the No. 2 doubles team of Bobby Romero and Jared Kaye, which swept its sets 6-2, 6-3, 6-4.
Vincent's singles keyed the victory, led by Eduardo Carrizosa, who beat Timm Walter 6-4, John Bonano 7-5 and Randy Lyon 6-2. Vincent's Don Fontaine won all three of his sets 6-3 and Daniel Cadena picked up a point with a 6-4 victory for the Scots (5-2).
