Boys' Varsity Tennis Ends Season With School's First CIF Division 1 Title

Boys' Varsity Tennis Ends Season With School's First CIF Division 1 Title

Emin Torlic served up a big ace, and the Sage Hill School boys’ tennis senior knew what he had accomplished Friday afternoon at the Claremont Club.

He let out a big yell before coming to the net to shake the hand of Beckman’s Dongkyu Kim.

“Esketit!” Torlic screamed out, echoing the name of a song by rapper Lil Pump.

“I wanted to scream and make sure that we all knew that we had just won,” Torlic said later.

Each of his Lightning teammates on the surrounding courts knew what it meant, as in “let’s get it,” the CIF crown.

“My morale was heightened by that,” junior Rohun Krishnan said.

Torlic had won the 10th and clinching set in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 final against top-seeded Beckman. Sage Hill went on to beat the Patriots 13-5, clinching the second CIF championship in program history and an undefeated season.

Sage Hill (19-0), the San Joaquin League champion, joins the 2011 Division 3 champions. This year’s boys’ tennis team is also the first Sage Hill team in any sport to win a Division 1 championship.
