Despite Almost Endless Rain, Rams Tennis is Alive and Well

By Xela Vargas


Although recent rain storms have dampened the City College’s Womens tennis season with continued rescheduling, the Rams team is holding its own as it approaches the coast conference championship, which will take place April 13-15 at West Valley College. As we all know, this spring we have been confronted with rain storms, after wind storms, and even hail storms. Tennis being an outdoor sport has been deeply inconvenienced by the forces of Mother Nature. 

At press time, the team is 2-2 in conference play and 4-2 overall. 

The 15-member team is led by Head Coach Mary Graber and Assistant Coach Lance Johnson. Team members include Lauren Acuan, Tiffany Beavers, Aurora Bellone, Rosanna Chiu, Susan Curry Walker, Anh Duong, Julia Milena Durkin, Alanna Hale, Sherry Lee, Christina Ling, Marietta Nunoz, Lily Tan, Gina Tsui, Tianrui Xu, and Bernice Zhu. 

Days prior to the CCC tournament, the Rams will have played non-conference games against Chabot College at home on April 3, an away game against Monterey Peninsula College on April 5, followed by another away game at Canada College on April 6.

Shortly thereafter, the CCCAA state championship takes place at Ventura/Ojal from April 27-30.

Despite the inconvenience of the heavy rains, the team has persevered and played well. Keep track of the team through April, which will surely test the teams strength heading into championship play.
