SBCC rallied to win three singles matches on Tuesday and went on to down Glendale 7-2 in a women's tennis match at Pershing Park.

Joica Buyse and Anya Nicolaides dropped the first set at Nos. 2 and 3 singles, then won their last two sets in convincing fashion. At No. 5, Jule Lauinger was down 4-1 in the first, then reeled off five straight games to win 6-4. She also beat Jennifer Goldsbury in the second set, 6-4.

Victoria Dafos and Maddie Mitchell swept their matches at Nos. 4 and 6 by identical 6-0, 6-1 scores to secure the victory.

The Vaqueros (13-2, 11-0 WSC) won their third straight WSC match and are closing in on their first conference title since the 2001 squad won the WSC crown and the state championship.

SBCC has three WSC matches remaining, starting Thursday at Victor Valley.
