Tennis team trumps Glendale

Ariel Lassiter

The Pierce College tennis team fought hard and triumphed as they competed in a tennis match against Glendale College, with three sets out of six won on Thursday.This season they are playing in the Western State Conference, in which they won a match against Hancock College on Feb. 28. The team took a loss to Ventura March 4, ending 9-0.”We need to win this match so we can be top two in the conference”, said Vinnie Amore, #8 in singles.”We feel pretty confident, it’s the first game against (Glendale), so I feel the usual butterflies,” said #8 singles player Jon Lexa. “This will be our first look at Glendale this conference period and we are going in with good spirits.” Coach Rajeev Datt motivates his players to warm up before the match by working their arms and legs out, in order to prevent any premature injuries due to unstretched muscles.”I have a great set of players this season,” said Rajeev. “I’m quite happy and proud of my guys. I’m a little surprised that we dropped three matches – I really expected a clean sweep.Rajeev said, “I think the Glendale guys had a bit of the wind escape from their sails after their number one got injured. Pierce swept the match pretty easily.” “I am having a lot of fun with this crop of players and I look forward to the rest of the conference this season,” he continued.
