Westmont sophomores Jessica Cedillo and Grace Davis won the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) NAIA West Regional doubles tournament on Saturday afternoon at Biola University in La Mirada.
The Warrior duo defeated Rye Hewett-Steiger and Florencia Martina from Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) by a score of 8-5.
“Grace and Jess played great and went up 6-1,” reported Westmont head coach Kendyll McManigal. “Before we knew it, the score was 6-5. Then Grace and Jess were able to close it out.
“Jessica played incredible,” continued McManigal. “She moved well and was cutting off the angles, poaching and covering. Grace was the one who came up with a couple of huge volleys in the final game. Their communication and the way they worked together allowed them to win.”
