The Judges of Benjamin Cardozo opened up its 2016 campaign with a 5-0 sweep over Forest Hills on Thursday afternoon.

Cardozo was led by its singles play, as Christopher Tham, William Kofman and Kai Yuminaga won at first, second and third singles, respectively, without dropping a game.

 Cardozo will return to action on Monday with a road contest against Francis Lewis.

The Patriots of Francis Lewis dropped its second straight match to start the season on Thursday as Bayside pulled out a 3-2 victory.
