GLENDALE — Having played their best tennis toward the end of the season and helping their respective teams qualify for the playoffs, a pair of local high school boys’ doubles teams have additional incentive to keep the trend going.
For Glendale High’s Jeff Asano and Elliot Kim and Flintridge Prep’s Jonathan Kim and John Lee, they will once again have the opportunity to showcase their skills by competing at 9 a.m. Friday in the CIF Individual Tournament at Whittier Narrows Tennis Center.
The single-elimination tournament features numerous league champions and finalists from around the region.
The sheet’s brackets are not released ahead of time to ensure every player shows up, among other rationale. Participants must win three matches Friday to advance to the Round of 16 at Seal Beach Tennis Center on May 28. The semifinals and finals will be held May 29 at the same venue.
