VENTURA - It's been a tough season for the Marauder women's tennis team. And it continued Tuesday afternoon, as the Marauders dropped their seventh consecutive match, 8-1, against host Ventura College.
Karly Britton was the lone AVC player to win a match against the Pirates, when she defeated Jessica Powell, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6). Nina Nguimzon dropped the first set against Ventura's Audrey Korbum, 6-3, only to rally by winning the second set, 7-5. However, Korbum easily won the third set 6-2.
The Marauders look to snap their losing skid when they host Bakersfield College on Thursday afternoon at Antelope Valley College. The Renegades defeated AVC, 5-4, at Bakersfield College on Feb. 18.
