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.
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
3. Leilani Figalan (COC) def Lorenne Connors (VVC) — 6-0, 6-0
4. Brienna Best (COC) def Vanessa McAllister (VVC) — 6-0, 6-0
Canyons (4-12) will continue its inaugural season by competing in the two-day WSC Championships April 6-7 at Ventura College.
