Julian Sosa probably thought something like “I got this” before facing Abe Lopez on Thursday.
The Napa High boys tennis team’s No. 5 singles player had beaten Vintage’s Lopez in straight sets in their previous meeting. But that was in early March. Lopez seemed six weeks better this time, stunning Sosa by winning a tie breaker in the first set.
With the rest of the singles and all doubles done for the day, the teams were tied at four wins apiece – and the contest was for Sosa and Lopez to decide.
