Defending Southern Section singles champion Doug Stewart of Malibu High became the first player to win both the singles and doubles titles in the boys' 18 division at the Easter Bowl/USTA Super National Spring Championships with victories Friday at the Riviera Resort and Racquet Club in Palm Springs.

The No. 2-seeded Stewart, a senior who will play at Virginia, defeated unseeded Nestor Briceno of Pembroke Pines, Fla., 5-7, 6-1, 6-3, for the singles title and then teamed with Stanford-bound James Pade of Redwood City to beat Ricardo Gonzalez of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, and Andre Iriarte of Rockville, Md., 7-6 (7), 7-5, for the doubles title.

With the singles victory, Stewart earned a wild card into the Mercedes-Benz Cup, an ATP event set for July 22-28 in Los Angeles.
