BERKELEY- The California Men’s Tennis Pair Mikey Wright and Jean-Kim won twice Saturday at the Hellman Tennis Complex to reach the ITA Northwest Regional Championships doubles final.

Kim and Wright, seeded fourth, started the day beating Mitchell Davis and Andrei Volgin of UC Davis, 8-6, in the morning quarterfinals. Later, in the final game of the day at Berkeley Regionals, the two Golden Bears defeated top seeds Neel Rajesh and Filip Kolasainski of Stanford, 7-5, 6-4, in the semifinals.
