Phelan — it proved to be a short postseason run for Serrano, which lost 17-1 to Chaparral/Temecula on Thursday in the opening round of the CIF-Southern Section Division III boys tennis playoffs.

Chaparral, the No. 2 seed from the Southwestern League, struggled with gusty winds early, but it didn't take long for the Pumas to adjust.

"Our wind is not as bad as it was out here today,” Chaparral coach Chad Spitley said. “I was proud of my boys for how they handled it; it was a little bit different for them."
