Mensford Owusu, Luis Jaimes, Alex Miehle, Marcio Dal Pont and Godi Enock each won their singles matches in straight sets. Laszlo Imre was up 7-5 2-2 in his match when play was called after Dal Pont sealed the match winning 6-2, 6-1.
The Eagles will now host Ventura College next Tuesday at 2pm at the tennis courts on the San Jacinto campus. Ventura defeated RCC yesterday 5-0 at Ventura. This will be the second meeting this season between 2 of the top ranked teams in southern California, the eagles visited Ventura earlier in the season and came away with a hard fought 5-4 win.
