That’s a wrap!

As the Spring 2010 semester comes to an end and summer break is on the horizon, so must the sports season. Some teams had more heart wrenching ends than others, but all of the teams had to see their seasons come to a climax, whether it was a happy or sad ending.

The women’s badminton team ended their season with an 8-0 record placing first in the Orange Empire Conference and advanced to the state championships the weekend of May 14-16. This is the team’s fourth undefeated regular season in a period of five years. Head Coach Son Nguyen is in his fifth year coaching women’s badminton and has led the women to three state championships with a 34-0 record.

Women’s softball finished out the season 18-18 after starting off strong, with a 100th victory for Head Coach LeeAnn Taylor against Los Angeles Pierce College. The Knights lost their last regular season game at Grossmont College April 20, 8-0.

Men’s tennis ended the regular season 1-17, being defeated by the majority of their opponents. Even with a dismal regular season record, men’s tennis still managed to have two representatives in the Southern California Regional Championships: Andre Lupian and David Munoz.

The women’s tennis team ended their season with one victory Mar. 16 against Cuyamaca College, for a regular season record of 1-9.

Men’s volleyball ended the season with a 12-6 overall record, and 8-4 Pacific Coast Conference record under Head Coach Jed Stotsenberg. The Knights also swept Mesa College this season.

Last but not least, Knights baseball has ended their season May 8 with a loss to Cuesta College in a three-game series at Morley Field. Head Coach Chris Brown has been named PCC Coach of the Year and right-hand pitcher Hunter Herrera was named PCC Player of the Year.
