This was the Buffaloes’ first time back on the court since losing a one-point contest against first-place Kimball last week. Manteca’s No. 1 Yok-Jing Ma and No. 2 Mike Lopez both won in straight sets, as did Thomas Reza (No. 5) and Alex Vasquez (No. 6) against the Spartans.

Lathrop’s Jared Palma registered his squad’s only point with a 6-4, 2-6, 10-8 victory over Spencer Jackson. The Buffaloes’ No. 3 Gino Mercado edged the Spartans’ Arvin Aragon 7-6 (2), 2-6, 10-8.

In doubles action, Manteca got the sweep with straight-set victories from its No. 1 doubles team of Yok-Eyh Ma and Nolan Osborn and its No. 3 tandem of Kyle Thornburg and Christian Plares.

Manteca’s No. 2 duo of Yayha Shabbar and Edvin Pepic knocked off Lathrop’s Chris Consul and Sahib Singh 6-2, 7-6 (2).
