ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Matthew Trinidad, East Union boys tennis
Bulletin sports 2020-21

Getting the competitive juices flowing after less than a week of practices was not hard for Trinidad. 

“It was a little more jarring having to wear a mask during the matches,” he said.

That didn't seem to bother him too much in East Union's first two Valley Oak League contests of the season. The Lancers' No. 1 player started with a 6-4, 0-6, 10-2 win over Manteca's Kayson Neduvakktu, then defeated Chen Yu Ma at Weston Ranch, 6-0, 6-4.

“I was excited to get back out to start training again and playing matches,” Trinidad said. “I'm happy with winning the first two matches of the season. I normally don't do well against a school like Manteca, but that match definitely made me feel happy and got me exciting for the following matches.”
