WEST CHESTER — The Unionville High School boys’ tennis team completed its fourth straight undefeated romp through the Ches-Mont League by defeating the host West Chester East Vikings Tuesday.

The Indians were led by Johnny Wu, who rolled to a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Saran Viswanathan at first singles. Peter Mason gutted out a tough match at third singles, prevailing 7-5, 6-3, over Christian Aksu.

The team has not lost a league match since the 2009 season, and looks to carry that momentum into the District I Class AAA team tournament next week.

“It’s very impressive to go for four years undefeated in the Ches-Mont,” Head coach Sharon Largent said. “The seniors haven’t lost a match in either the American or National divisions.”

Senior co-captain Jeremy Waterkotte, who along with sophomore partner Srikanth Garlapati took a 6-0, 6-2 decision over the team of Rohit Goyal and Andrew Fleming at first doubles, said, “It’s been an honor to play on such a talented team for four years.” He then added with a grin, “No one likes to lose; that’s why we don’t.”
