Palm Desert’s Connor Rapp, seen here in the CIF first round, helped the Aztecs cruise to the CIF quarterfinals with three winning sets on Friday.

The Aztecs nearly ran the table, but lost one set in singles to prevent the sweep.

Palm Desert will play on the road again Monday, against a Peninsula squad that eliminated the Aztecs a year ago.

“It will be a revenge game for sure,” head coach Brian Jacobs said. “We want to play them again.”

Top singles players Connor Rapp and Alex Kuperstein both swept their three sets, as did all three doubles teams. It wasn’t a close contest.

“The boys on this team, they have a special energy that makes them tough to stop once they get going,” Jacobs said. “They really brought it today. We just went right through our opponent.”
