Teresa Downey blanked her opponent for the second straight match on Tuesday and SBCC topped Antelope Valley 7-2 in a women's tennis match at Pershing Park.

Downey, the Vaqueros' No. 1 player, posted a 6-0, 6-0 win over Melissa Coyoy to improve to 7-0 in WSC matches. The Vaqueros, who got a pair of forfeit wins over Bakersfield this week, are 4-7 overall and 4-5 in conference.

Kenzie Usher had her best match of the year, hitting with power and confidence in a 6-1, 6-0 win over Lorena Castillo at No. 5 singles. She also teamed with Gabriela McDaniel to take the No. 1 doubles set, 8-3.
