Women’s tennis ends its season at SoCal Regional

Playing against the top eight players from every conference in Southern California, the Cerritos College women’s tennis team lost in the Southern California Regional in San Diego on May 3 to 5.

Mandi Jenkins and Kim Diaz were the final two of Cerritos’ tennis players to take a loss in their round.

According to the women’s tennis Head Coach Alvin Kim, “The regional tournament is a very difficult tournament. We did win one round but [during] the rest of the qualifying rounds we were eliminated.”

Kim said that the most consistent player the team has had this season was Mandi Jenkins, as she played number one for the Falcons for a majority of the season.

Jenkins record this season is 8-12 in singles and 5-15 in doubles.

Kim also said, “It has been a tough season. We lost a lot of good players in the beginning of the season, that were supposed to play for us this year, so we were a bit short handed. In the long run, the women worked very hard and they were capable.

“They did the best they could.”

Up until the South Coast Conference Tournament, the Falcons had an overall record of 5-12.
