Nick Ballou (Cal Lutheran)
Ballou had a stellar week for the Kingsmen, winning all of his matches in both singles and doubles easily. Against #19 Trinity (CT), he and doubles partner Ray Worley rolled past the Trinity duo of McCook/Mandel. He kept up his good play in singles, beating the 47th ranked McCook 6-1 6-1. Against #1 Amherst, he continued his winning ways by beating Amherst’s #1 doubles team 8-1 and former Amherst #1 Luis Rattenhuber 6-2 6-1. If Ballou keeps playing like this, Cal Lu could be a serious threat to win the California regional.
