About the Team

Menlo girls’ tennis advanced to the NorCal Championships for the fourth time in seven seasons. The young Knights crew wrapped up the season with a remarkable 23-6 record, featuring a trip to the NorCal and CCS championships matches.

The Knights captured a 26th consecutive league championship after finishing the season undefeated in league in 2019. The Knights kept alive a streak of league dual-match wins that covered 24 seasons, and the Knights captured the trifecta with NorCal, CCS, and league crowns while compiling a 26-3 overall record. Menlo School’s tennis program consistently finishes in the top six of the Central Coast Section.

Menlo won back-to-back CCS and CIF-Northern California championships in 2014 and 2015. The Knights claim 100 CCS titles and won four Northern California titles in a row from 1998-2001. Menlo holds the CCS record for consecutive wins 92 straight from 1996-2000.
