In the 'B' singles flight, sophomore Jill Smith (4-0) and senior Neely Davis (3-1) were dominant. In the 'C' women's singles flight, junior Jen Konopa went 4-0 in singles for the weekend and senior Leilani Alontaga went 3-1 to show the Cobras dominance in singles play.
In the doubles competition, Smith and Spencer combined to go 2-2 in the women's doubles 'A' flight.
Head Men's and Women's tennis coach Alvin Cheng commented: "Our men were up against some tough competition. They performed well overall but we could still use a little more work. I was very impressed with the women, as the results will tell. All of them played well in singles and our doubles pairings worked really well together."
