The Lady Cougars have won three straight matches to begin the season, this time picking up a 7-2 road win at host Fullerton College on Tuesday.

The three straight victories marks the best start to a season for COC which launched its women's tennis program in spring 2018. 

Canyons swept all three of its doubles matches to begin the day's action and jump out to an early 3-0 advantage. 

During singles play COC sophomores Una Stanisavljevic and Nicole Villarta, the team's No. 1 and No. 2 ranked players, both dropped their matchups. 

COC No 3 freshman Taylor Cohen dropped her opening set 6-7, but quickly bounced back to win the matchup.

Fellow freshmen Taylor Cohen, Mary MacAdam and Jennifer Russell each cruised to victory to help push Canyons past the Hornets.

COC next begins WSC action on the road Thursday, Feb. 6 vs. Santa Monica College.
