HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Winning seven of ten pairs matches, including sweeps in six of them, the Riverside City College (RCC) Tigers women's beach (sand) volleyball team split a pair of matches, one of which was an Orange Empire Conference (OEC) match in a twinbill hosted by Santa Ana College (SAC) at Newland Court at Huntington Beach last Wednesday (Mar. 30).

Riverside (7-3 overall) defeated the Rio Hondo College (RHC) Roadrunners, 5-0, before narrowly losing, 3-2, to the host Santa Ana Dons in an OEC match.

Two Tigers tandems won their pair of matches. Frosh Sabrina Gonzaga (Moreno Valley / Citrus Hill HS '14) and frosh Marissa Vialpando (Riverside / Notre Dame HS '15) -- who is pictured -- and sophomore Melissa Moe and frosh Hailey Krewson all won twice.

Riverside will return to action on Friday, Apr. 8, when it faces host Golden West College (GWC) in an Orange Empire Conference (OEC) match at 10 a.m.
