Warriors Cruise to Victory in Conference Opener

Warriors Cruise to Victory in Conference Opener

El Camino College lost just one match in its conference opening 8-1 victory over Cerritos Thursday afternoon at the ECC Tennis Courts.

The Warriors secured the match before the doubles action even got started as ECC took five of the six singles matches including one forfeit.

With low temperatures and high winds, the Warriors had to battle the elements as well as the defending state champion Falcons but came out victorious.

Madi Giese and Riko Tanagawa highlighted the singles action despite Tanagawa dropping her first game in three matches. Despite losing the second set in a tiebreaker, Tanagawa bounced back and took set three in dominant fashion to remain undefeated on the young season in singles action.

The Warriors will return to action on Tuesday with a road match at Rio Hondo. First serve is set for 2 p.m.
