Bishop Diego’s Luke Williams swept his three sets at No. 1 singles with the loss of only one game, but the Cardinals were defeated by Foothill Tech 11-7.

“Luke came out strong, working his serve and placing ground strokes on every inch of the court,” Bishop coach Natlee Hapeman said. “The placement of each ball is well thought out, and strategy is well played. Luke is the driving force of this team.”

Bishop Diego is now 0-3 overall and 0-2 in the Frontier League.

“The score of this match does not even scratch the surface of the heart and soul that was left on the court today,” Hapeman said. “The team is improving in front of our eyes. Each match is played with increased intensity. This team has a never-give-up attitude.”

The Cardinals play at Cate on Wednesday.
