The boys made the quarterfinal round of the tournament after an exciting come from behind victory over region rival Landmark Christian School last week in the play-in round. The Bobcats, who had lost to Landmark twice during the regular season, overcame an 0-2 deficit to defeat Landmark 3-2.  Each of the three matches Mercy won went to 3 sets, with the Line 2 Doubles match won by Pham/Shupenus going to a tiebreak.  Congrats to entire boys team on their great victory that sent them on in the tournament.
