Men’s tennis advances in SCC Tournament

Two members of the Men’s Tennis team advanced in the South Coast Conference Tournament as a result of the matches taking place on Friday.

During the singles matches Todd Jenkins played against Tomo Takatsu of El Camino College with a final score of 6-2, 6-2.

Chris Nguey was ranked second in conference and advanced through the tournament on bye games not facing any opponents.

Jenkins said that to prepare for the tournament, he really focuses on specifics and the coach tells the team to go out there on the court and work on what they really need to work on.

He also said that his strong suit during the match against Takatsu was his serve.

“My serve was the strongest, I didn’t miss many, they went in there consistent and they were well placed.”

Jenkins and Nguey both will be moving on to compete in the Southern California Regional Tournament in San Diego.

Jenkins said he isn’t nervous about going into the tournament at San Diego.

“I’m actually anxious to see what the competition is like.” Jenkins said.

Alvin Kim, Coach of both men’s and women’s tennis said that the conference had a lot of good players.

Only three other schools were involved in the tournament.

Kim said that Jenkins worked his way through the tournament well and the other guys found themselves in tough match ups and even though they didn’t make it through the qualifying rounds they still played well.

“Well we worked hard all season, we don’t need to work any harder we just need to stay mentally motivated and everything we worked on so far should pay off” Kim said about the San Diego tournament.

The regional tournament takes place on May 3-5.
