Canyons Wins Final Home Match 7-2 Over Victor Valley

Canyons Wins Final Home Match 7-2 Over Victor Valley

By Jesse Muñoz/COC Sports Information Director

College of the Canyons played in the final home match of its inaugural season on Thursday, earning a decisive 7-2 conference victory over Victor Valley College to end a five-match skid and end the regular season on a high note.

The win was the second in as many outings vs. the Rams. On Feb. 22, COC defeated VVC 9-0 to notch the first road victory in program history. 

Thursday's match had originally been scheduled for March 22 but was postponed due to inclement weather. That turned out to be a bit of good fortune for Canyons, as the Cougars will now be riding a victory into this weekend's conference championships.

COC won three of four singles matches and split its two doubles pairings. Victor Valley forfeited a total of two singles and one doubles match for a final 7-2 score.

Leilani Figalan and Brienna Best both blanked their opponents, while Jenny Cranert was nearly perfect with sets of 6-0 & 6-2. Sheena Pahoyo-Hernandez and Ruth Kedrowski added an 8-1 doubles victory.

Full match results are listed below:  


1. Marisa Wambolt (COC) lost to Allie Samp (VVC) — 3-2, (ret.)

2. Jenny Cranert (COC) def Ava Andrasi (VVC) — 6-0, 6-2
