The Rams are 12-3 with one match remaining at Coast Union. They ranked ranked No. 7 in Division 4.
“Today was another important step forward for us,” coach Trevor Thorpe said. “We’re excited to be going after that crucial playoff-clinching win against Coast Union next Tuesday. I feel the boys have very much earned the right to compete with the best in our division this post-season.”
The freshman duo of John-Henry Schulz and Rhami Zeini swept their doubles sets and the Owls’ three singles players all went 2-1 on the day against Dunn.
