CIF Tennis: Long Beach Poly, Wilson Advance To Quarters

Long Beach Poly and Wilson both won their CIF Southern Section tennis matches on Friday to advance to Monday afternoon’s quarterfinals.

Poly, the league champ in Division 2, hosted Corona Santiago and prevailed against the Sharks 13-5. The undefeated Jackrabbits (22-0) will travel to Great Oak on Monday to try and keep their run going.

Wilson (19-2) is in Division 3 and is the top seed in that bracket. They’ve been playing like it so far, and traveled to Ventura College to cruise past Foothill Tech on Friday, 12-6. The Bruins will host Corona Centennial on Monday at 2 p.m.

If the Jackrabbits and Bruins advance on Monday, the semifinals would be Wednesday.
