College of the Canyons hosted a pair of matches on Saturday, picking up a win over San Diego City College in the morning session before having its six-match win streak halted by American River College during the afternoon affair.

Canyons (6-1) has now matched its best season start in program history by beginning a perfect 6-0. The Lady Cougars’ 2020 squad also started the season 6-0, then improved to 9-2, before having the remainder of its season cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The victory over San Diego City (0-2) came in a tight 5-4 result which saw COC take a pair of doubles matches before three more points in singles play.

Sydney Tamondong and Ellie Wingo teamed for a victory at the No. 1 doubles court, with Faith Abt and Marie McCormick also taking a point as the No. 3 doubles duo.

Tamondong secured another point with her win as the No. 1 singles position. Elsewhere it was Abt at No. 5 and McCormick at No. 6 claiming crucial points.

Canyons wouldn’t be able to sustain that success vs. the defending state champions American River College (2-0). The Beavers emerged with a 9-0 victory in dealing the Canyons side its first loss of the year.

That loss also snapped Tamondong’s individual streak of six singles victories. Additionally, the No. 1 doubles duo of Tamondong/Wingo are now 5-1 for the season after falling vs. ARC on Saturday.

Through the team’s first seven matches Abt has posted a record of 4-3 from the No. 5 spot while McCormick is 5-2 at the No. 6 position.

COC is back in action Tuesday, Feb. 13 in a 2 p.m. conference match vs. Antelope Valley College.
