VACAVILLE — The Armijo High boys tennis team will have to wait a little while to claim the Monticello Empire League crown.

Needing a win Wednesday to clinch the title, the Indians (11-2, 11-2 MEL) came up just short, falling to host Vacaville 5-4.

The loss leaves Armijo in first place with two matches remaining.

Vacaville (10-3) and Napa are tied for second place with the Bulldogs handing the Indians both their MEL losses.

“Wow, so close,” said Armijo coach Greg Davis. “(We) battled and battled and just came up short. Vacaville played a great match today, we worked hard and just missed.”

Armijo dropped four singles matches and also lost at No. 1 doubles.

Of the Indians’ four wins, three were in three sets and all three doubles matches went to three.

Erik San Miguel eked out a three-set victory at No. 6 singles over Vacaville’s Mark Anderson, 5-7, 6-0, 7-5.

At No. 3 singles, Armijo’s Derek Wadsworth topped Chris Ronco 6-3, 6-1.

The first doubles victory came from Gabe Vigil and Justin Wong, who beat Vaca’s Chris Meyer and Renato Panta 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.

Armijo’s Jose Gaglione and Crispin Marquez won 5-7, 6-2, 10-7.

“In the end we remain strongly in first place; and that’s what we play for – MEL championships,” Davis said. “Erik San Miguel was awesome today and inspired us all with his play.”

The Indians are at Wood on Friday, and they need to win one of their final two matches to clinch no worse than a tie for the championship.

Napa 9, Rodriguez 0: At Fairfield, the Indians made quick work of the Mustangs to remain in second place in the MEL standings, tied with Vacaville and two matches behind first-place Armijo.

Only the Rodriguez doubles team of Seth Cepeda and Austin Alcala won as many as four games in a set, falling to Napa’s Quinn Costello and Reison Blumer 6-0, 6-4.
