Corona del Mar Beats University

Seniors Jed Weinstein and Paul Fruchbom, pairing up for the first time since they were freshmen, won three doubles sets to lead Corona del Mar to an 11-10 victory over visiting University in a Sea View League boys' tennis match Wednesday.

The Sea Kings, 15 2/3-5 2/3 losers to University the first time the teams met, won three singles and six doubles sets to pull out the victory.

Weinstein and Fruchbom won 6-1, 7-5, 6-2. Roberto Intriago, who normally is paired with Fruchbom, joined Tyler Stonebreaker for a pair of victories, 7-5, 6-2, and Doug Smith and Mike Feyka won, 6-4, for Corona del Mar (10-2, 7-1), which moved into a tie for first with University (9-2, 7-1).

Because doubles victories are worth 1 1/3, Corona del Mar Coach Tim Mang shuffled his lineup and it worked.

"I was hoping (University coach) Josh (Davis) would move Jason Meyers to doubles, giving our singles a chance," Mang said.

Meyers, the Trojans' top player, ended up losing two doubles sets.

Three sets went to 7-5 with Corona del Mar winning all three on service breaks in the final game.
