The Bakersfield College Women's Tennis Team (9-1, 4-0) busted on the 21st of February, a number more commonly associated with "blackjack", a winning hand in the eponymous card game. The stakes? Their previously undefeated season.
Orange Coast College (6-0, 0-0) eeked out a thrilling 5-4 victory in non-conference action Tuesday, and now BC is tasked with keeping their conference record pristine.
"We were both undefeated, the stage was set. Somebody was going home with a loss, and unfortunately it was us," Coach Nick Laudermilk said, "But we did not go down without a fight. The lady gades took their first loss of the season but learned a lot about themselves in the process."
