Boys Tennis wins league title with victory over Diamond Bar

Claremont High School boys tennis defeated Diamond Bar, 11-7, on Tuesday, earning a Palomares League championship.

Juniors Ahkeel Mohideen and Johnny Hernandez kept the team in the lead going into the last round by winning the final three games of their doubles match. Down 4-3, Mohideen held serve and then the pair broke serve to go up 5-4. Hernandez then held his serve to win the match, 7-5.

The Pack won all three singles and the number one doubles match in the last round to clinch the victory.

Earlier in the week Claremont defeated Ayala 17-5, which set up a rematch with Diamond Bar for the league title. Last year Claremont was undefeated going into the final match against the Brahmas but lost.

Both senior Leyton Bohren, 26-0, and junior Jason Weisman, 24-0, finished the season undefeated in league singles play. Junior Andrew Weisman and sophomore Ben Stapp finished the season at 20-1. Bohren and both Weismans are playing in the CIF boys singles and doubles tournament in Ojai starting on Thursday.
