VACAVILLE — The Vanden High boys tennis team ended the Solano County Athletic Conference season with two second-place finishes, Wednesday.

Patrick Dazo fell 6-3, 6-3 to Arturo Posada of Vallejo in the finals of the singles tournament, while Antonio Ramirez and Reis Vince Cruz finished second in the doubles tournament to Bethel’s Mark and Marvic Domingo (6-0, 6-0).

“It was a good day,” Viking coach Stan Lewis said. “We did a good job of fighting off the nerves. These kids aren’t used to playing multiple matches like today; especially when it’s hot.”

Ramirez and Vince Cruz won its first round match 6-4, 7-6, 7-1 over Lura and Canlas of Fairfield, 7-5, 7-5 over Concha and Cacam of Bethel and 7-6, 8-6, 6-3 over Splinter and Diaw from Benicia in the semifinals.

Other doubles matches for Vanden were Devyn Cabillo and Leonard Hsiung who fell 6-3, 4-6, 10-6 to Concha and Cacam in the first round, while Joseph Brooks and Jaime Abalon made it to the semis but fell to the Domingo brothers (6-3, 6-0).

On their way to the semis, Brooks and Abalon defeated Tindan and Portacio of American Canyon (6-4, 6-1) and Uy and Lunar of Vallejo (6-2, 6-3). They played one set in the third place game and dropped a 9-7 decision to Splinter and Diaw.

Lewis said Ramirez and Vince Cruz had an awesome day as an un-seeded team that defeated three No. 1 teams.

“We left some chances on the board. All the kids gave their best effort and played well.”

Dazo and Ramirez-Vince Cruz qualified for the section tournament which will begin May 8.

Garrison named as new SJS commissioner

LODI — Mike Garrison has been selected as the Sac-Joaquin Section’s fourth commissioner by the unanimous vote of the Section’s Board of Managers, Wednesday.

Garrison, currently the assistant superintendent of Human Relations for the Rocklin Unified School District, served as SJS president from 2010-12 and is a member of the Section Executive Committee.

“I’m extremely excited,” Garrison said at the Board of Manager’s meeting at The Reserve at Spanos Park. “I truly look forward to serving the schools of the Sac-Joaquin Section. This is my dream job.”

Garrison succeeds Pete Saco, who has served as commissioner since 1993 and officially retires Aug. 30.

Saco was preceded by Clark Coover (1968-93) and James Cave (1942-68). As a tribute to Saco, the Section’s office building at 1368 East Turner Road in Lodi was renamed the Peter J. Saco Building.

“I have some very large shoes to fill,” said Garrison, a former athletic director and principal at Rocklin High, who will start on Aug. 1.
