Men's Basketball opens season with a loss

On Tuesday, the Cerritos College women's tennis team won three of the seven total matches that were played against host Fullerton College. With just five players on the roster, the Falcons (0-3) were forced to forfeit one of the singles and doubles matches, which contributed to their 6-3 non-conference loss. The team will open South Coast Conference play on Thursday when they travel to El Camino College for a 2:00 p.m. match.

Picking up wins in singles play were both Alba Gonzalez (Colegio Madre Guadalupe, Venezuela) and Yesenia Palacios (Long Beach Wilson HS), who each won in straight sets. In the #2 match, Gonzalez earned a 6-4, 6-0 win over Alexus Lombera, while Palacios posted a convincing 6-1, 6-2 victory against Janey Sjiau in the #3 position on the ladder. Gonzalez teamed with sophomore Moa Lindström (Dragonskolan Elitidrottgymnasium, Sweden) in the #1 doubles match for a hard-fought 8-6 victory.
