Desert Downs Lady Eagles in Tennis
The MSJC women's tennis team hosted the College of the Desert on Thurday, March 26th. The College of the Desert beat MSJC 8-1, however, the match was a lot closer than the score indicated. The MSJC women played their heart out and really showed great improvement from when they last played COD. The doubles was a heated affair with several momentum shifts. The singles were also played tough by both teams. The single matches of the day goes to Cristina Garcia. Garcia defeated Partida 6-3, 3-6, 1-0 (8), and this was one of the many exciting matches, especially since Partida had defeated Garcia in their last encounter. Coach Duron said she was "incredibly impressed with their play and competed with their hearts on their sleeves. The women have really improved in their doubles strategies and their singles. I cannot be more proud of this group of women and I look forward to next week's matches."
The next match will be at the Valleywide Recreation Center versus Antelople Valley College on March 31st.
The last home match and sophomore day will be held on April 2nd versus Victor Valley College on April 2nd.
The MSJC women's tennis is now 8-4 on the season
