Eagles Cruise Past Long Beach in Tennis

The MSJC Mens Tennis team made quick work of visiting Long Beach City College in a 2nd round South Coast Conference Match played on 4/02/09 at the Valley Wide Recreation Tennis Courts in San Jacinto. MSJC used only 5 of its available players since visiting LBCC had onl 5 players for the match. The Eagles easily swept through the singles matches and then completely dominated the remaining 2 doubles matches. This was a perfect opportunity for the alternate singles players in the line-up to get some match play and they did not dissapoint giving up a total of 6 games combined at the #3 - 5 positions. Richard Tetteh stepped up to play #1 singles and gave a up 2 games finishing off his opponent in very little time. Richard teamed up with Kenny Hotchkiss at the #1 doubles slot to record an easy 8-2 win.
Next up for the Eagles is a rematch against Powerhouse College of the Desert which is also the last regular match of the season. The Eagles will look to improve on their 8-1 loss last month in palm springs against COD. Please come by and support the mens tennis team as they wrap up this very long and succesful campaign. Match time is set for 2pm next tuesday at the Tennis Courts on the MSJC campus.
