The City College women’s tennis team is more than halfway through the season, and currently ranked third place in conference.
The Rams, who hold a 5-3 record overall, played their second match against De Anza (7-1), March 13 in a series of doubles that ended in a first of seven tiebreaker.
The tiebreaker placed Shir- ley Zhang and Caroline Williams against Cabrillo’s Jackie Lee and Danika Selvarja.
“It was difficult,” Shirley Zhang said. “We were under pressure. We had to calm down a little and just basically put points away and find a spot where we could place them and hope it would be a winner.”
The women’s tennis team had previously lost to De Anza, 8-1 ear- lier in the season. Since then, Head Coach Kelly Hickey has emphasized more double drills during practice.
“The ball just kept coming back so it was whoever came out on top at the end,” said Zhang. “They were really good.”
