University’s boys tennis team finished one victory shy Saturday of sweeping through its challenging week.

The Trojans fell to Torrey Pines 5-2 in the finals of the prestigious National High School Tennis All-American Boys Team Tournament in Rolling Hills Estates.

University opened its week Wednesday by defeating previously undefeated Corona del Mar, ranked No. 1 in the CIF Southern Section, 11-7. The two-time defending CIF-SS Open Division champion then beat No. 9 Northwood 14-4 on Thursday.

The 23rd edition of the All-American tournament began Friday. The event was played for the first time in the South Bay.

On Friday, the top-seeded Trojans defeated Canyon Crest Academy of San Diego 6-0, Bellarmine of San Jose 6-0 and New Trier of Illinois 4-2 to reach Saturday’s final at the historic Jack Kramer Club.

Torrey Pines, from the San Diego Section, was seeded third.

“I’m very proud of the boys,” University coach John Kessler said.

University could face Torrey Pines in the SoCal regional, which in May will serve as the qualifier for the inaugural state championship.

The Trojans defeated Corona del Mar in the regional final last season.
