PREP TENNIS : Doubles Give Santa Barbara Victory in Division I Final

June 03, 1993

In a rematch of the 1992 Southern Section Division I final, the Santa Barbara High boys' tennis team defeated Peninsula, 11-7, Wednesday at the Knowlwood Tennis Club in Montecito to win its sixth consecutive team championship and eleventh overall.

Alex Decret, Santa Barbara's No. 1 singles player, gave the Dons their only victories in singles. Santa Barbara (23-1) won eight of nine doubles sets.

Decret, a senior, defeated Loren Peters, 6-2; Kyle Spencer, 6-2; and Dennis Chang, 6-2.

"I think that (Decret) was our real catalyst," said Jack Trigueiro, Santa Barbara coach. "He played extremely well."

Decret also won the Southern Section singles championship Saturday with a victory against Peters.

Peninsula ended its season 24-1.

Burbank 10, Righetti 8--Burbank High's No. 2 doubles team defeated Santa Maria Righetti's No. 3 team in a tiebreaker in the deciding set to give the Bulldogs their first Southern Section championship in Division III at McCambridge Park in Burbank.

Roy Kim and Rick Hart beat Gary Morris and Ian Moats, 7-6 (6-3), to decide the match.

Nordhoff 12, Santa Maria St. Joseph 6--Steve Tallakson and Chris Biorkman, the Rangers' No.1 and No. 2 singles players, each won three sets, as did Justin Zimmerman and Carey Biorkman, their No. 1 doubles team, in Division IV at the Ojai Valley Inn and Country Club.
