Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Tom McCullough hasn't been heard from much in the high school boys' tennis scene this season, but that doesn't mean he isn't making noise elsewhere. That was evidenced by his play Thursday in the 104th annual Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament. The Flintridge Prep senior -- who has rarely played for the Rebels this year -- won twice in the CIF singles draw. McCullough defeated Kevin Kordestani of Rancho Santa Margarita Tesoro, 6-3, 6-1, in the first round of the 64-player draw.
