2013 All-County boys tennis team
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Gage Brymer, University, Sr.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Jamie Gresh, Corona del Mar
Jayson Amos, El Toro, Sr.
Far and away the best player on his team, the Oregon-bound Amos had a fantastic season. Playing in every dual match, Amos went 55-2, his only regular-season losses coming against Foothill's Stefan Doehler and Dana Hills' Chase Masciorini. Amos took San Marino's James Wade to three sets in the Ojai quarterfinals and won the South Coast League singles title.
Alec Adamson, Corona del Mar, Sr.
A stalwart atop the lineup, the Sea Kings' senior captain led his team to the CIF-SS championship match and the semifinals of regionals. An All-American, the UC Davis-bound Adamson's only dual-match losses came against University's star-studded singles lineup of Gage Brymer, Tyler Lu and Stefan Menichella.
Drew Dawson, University, Jr.
This is Dawson's third appearance on the All-County team. He starred in both singles and doubles for the Trojans in yet another dominant season. The Notre Dame commit teamed with Tyler Lu to win the doubles championship at the Ojai Tennis Tournament and was a runner-up in the CIF-SS tournament while playing with Stefan Menichella. Dawson will be University's top returning player next season.
Stefan Doehler, Foothill, Jr.
A quarterfinalist in the CIF-SS singles tournament, Doehler was arguably the best player outside of the Pacific Coast League this season. He went undefeated in regular-season dual matches for the second straight year and won his second Century League singles title. He also led the Knights to three victories in the Division 2 playoffs.
Tyler Lu, University, Sr.
On most other teams in the country, Lu would star at No. 1 singles. One of 40 All-Americans nationwide, the Yale-bound senior helped the Trojans win their fourth straight CIF-Southern Section title and a regional championship. Though usually a singles player, Lu claimed the doubles title with teammate Drew Dawson at the prestigious Ojai Tennis Tournament in April.
Stefan Menichella, University, Sr.
Good luck finding an All-American at No. 3 singles anywhere else in the country. Like Tyler Lu, the Pepperdine-bound Menichella would highlight most other lineups. He will leave University with four CIF-SS championship team titles as part of a senior class that never lost a dual match.
Eric Tseng and Arash Hafezi, University
On a team as star-studded as University's, it's easy for several talented players to fly under the radar. Tseng, a junior, and Hafezi, a sophomore, made sure to grab the spotlight on the last day of the season by coming from behind to upset teammates Stefan Menichella and Drew Dawson to win the CIF-SS doubles title. Both also stepped up to win singles matches in the Trojans' 5-2 regional championship victory against San Marino.
Carson Williams and Josh Kliger, Corona del Mar
The Sea Kings could count on their No. 1 doubles team to provide three points in nearly every match. The two juniors advanced to the quarterfinals at the Ojai Tennis Tournament and used that experience to elevate their game the second half of the season. Their only losses in the dual-match season came against University.
