Tess Kolkman and Edda von Hodenberg combined to win three points on Thursday and SBCC downed Ventura 6-3 for its first women's tennis victory of the year at Pershing Park.

Kolkman, a freshman from Holland, returned from a foot injury and rallied to win at No. 4 singles 2-6, 6-0, 6-0 in her first match for the Vaqueros. Von Hodenberg, a freshman from Germany, cruised to a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 6 singles as Santa Barbara (1-2, 1-1 WSC) took a 4-2 lead after singles.

Kolkman / Von Hodenberg clinched the match by beating Candice Nito / Chelsea Petersen 8-2 in No. 3 doubles.

"This was the first match that we've had our full roster," noted coach Lance Kronberg. "It was great to get our first win on our home courts."

Von Hodenberg is 4-0 in singles and doubles this year in WSC action. Marcela Massaglia swept her opponent at No. 2 singles, 6-4, 6-1, while Amanda Berke posted a three-set win at No. 5 singles.

Massaglia and Maddie Seeds won the last match of the day under the lights, beating Yannick Garcia / Jia Weibe 9-8 (5) in a tight No. 1 doubles set.

The Vaqueros continue their three-game homestand on Tuesday against Antelope Valley at 2 p.m.
