Santa Ynez Falls to SLO in Tennis

Claire Collison and Camilla Curti each won a singles set for the Pirates in a 16-2 loss to San Luis Obispo on Thursday.

Collison beat SLO’s No. 1 played Lauren Sanchez 6-1 and Camilla Curti won 6-4 against a substitute for Sanchez.

The Tigers won all nine doubles sets.

“This is what we want in preseason,” coach Edwin Portillo said, “to play tough teams so we can make adjustments in our line up for future matches.”
