Women's Tennis Suffers First Loss

The MSJC women's tennis team suffered their first loss of the season against Cerritos College.  Cerritos played a tough singles line up and took the #1, 4, 5, and 6 positions.  MSJC earned their two points of the day from Nicole Lessley at the #2 singles spot and Michelle Escamilla at the #3 singles spot.  In doubles, Cerritos College swept all three doubles matches.  Escamilla and Valdez played a very tough #2 doubles match and will improve as the season goes along.
 
Coach Duron said, "While it's tough to lose a match, these girls are preparing very well for the Foothill conference and with each match they are gaining more mental toughness and match experience.  In addition, each match they are coming together and creating a stronger team bond."
