The Orange Coast College women’s tennis team is once again atop the Orange Empire Conference mountain top flowwing an impressive regular season.

The team’s 9-0 win over Fullerton College on April 4 wrapped up the conference season and gave Coast a perfect 10-0 record in OEC play (17-1 overall). It’s the third conference title in a row for the defending state champion Pirates.

Winners of 24 of their past 25 matches dating back to last year, the Pirates have been seeded No. 2 overall in this year’s Southern California Regional playoffs.

Grossmont College, who went undefeated and won the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference this season was no match for OCC, who beat them with ease in the first round 5-0.

The Pirates faced another quality opponent in Gendale College on Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m. in the second round. Glendale went 21-2 and also won their respective conference, posing as OCC’s toughest threat all season.

The results were not available at press time.
