Long Beach, Calif.-
In their first conference match of the season, the Tigers came up short in their match against the Long Beach State 49ers. The final match score was Long Beach 7, Pacific 0.
Though the Tigers came up short, they were slowly regaining their footing after having been short several athletes due to injuries.
At the conclusion of the match, Coach Chino stated, "There is a reason that Long Beach State has been the top team in our conference for awhile; they are solid and very consistent. Playing them helps us realize what level of tennis we are striving for. We competed well as usual and will continue to work on getting better every day in practice and matches. We must get and stay healthy to accomplish that goal. We will have a much better match tomorrow against UC Riverside."
