MGCCC tennis splits with Faulkner State

November 7, 2013

MGCCC’S Bobby Vo looks on as doubles partner Tyler Youngblood returns a shot against Faulkner State on Nov. 13.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College tennis teams continue to take advantage of the fall season to improve and prepare for 2014.

On Nov. 6 the men’s team fell 7-2 to Faulkner, with the doubles team of Bobby Vo and Tyler Youngblood winning 8-3, and Josh Johnson teaming with DeAngelo Vaxter taking their doubles match 8-4.

The Lady Bulldogs got by Faulkner 5-4 behind the play of sophomore Aliesha Barlow and freshman Ana Pol, who both earned victories in singles and doubles.

Sophomores Brittney Buker and Anneisia Johnson also picked up wins for Gulf Coast.

“I was really pleased with the effort of most of our players,” said Gary Bourgeois, Gulf Coast tennis coach. “We still have a long way to go to reach our goals, and we have to improve our shot selection and do a better job of defending the second serve.  We’re a young team, but we must stay focused and develop more patience and discipline.  The fall season is a great opportunity for these players to get better.”
