Earlier this season, seventh ranked Westmont Women’s Tennis became the Golden State Athletic Conference Regular season co-champions, alongside Arizona Christian. Today, the Warriors (10-7) stand alone as the GSAC Tournament Champions, after defeating the Firestorm (17-4) by a decisive score of 5-0.
“We are so excited about this win,” shared head coach Kendyll McManigal. “It was a team effort and everyone contributed. From the start we had great energy and really got some momentum.”
The Warriors harnessed momentum early on when they swept in doubles 3-0.
“Going up 3-0 after doubles was so pivotal,” continued McManigal. “Honesty I don’t think against a top team or rival we have ever done that. We strive for going up 2-1 and don’t always get two doubles points so three was extra special. It wasn’t easy. But the girls rallied and gained momentum when they saw their teammates winning.”
