As the season winds down for The Master’s College’s spring sports, it was a mixed bag of results for baseball and women’s tennis this week.

The Mustangs baseball team traveled to Azusa to play in the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament, but didn’t stay long, losing back-to-back games after winning their opener to be eliminated from the tournament.

The women’s tennis team had better fortunes, though, ending a difficult season with a sweep.


The Mustangs entered the GSAC tournament on Tuesday fresh off a sweep of La Sierra.

Things were rocky from the start, as starting pitcher A.J. Work allowed a run in the first inning, two in the second and one in the third to put the Mustangs in an early hole.

But TMC responded with four runs over its own over the next three innings, tying the game in the sixth on a home run by Bryan Lucas.

After putting up another run in the seventh, a four-run eighth proved to be enough for TMC to hold off Biola 9-8.

Work threw eight innings in a winning effort, striking out five and allowing seven earned runs.

Tommy Kister picked up the save.

Things changed after that for the Mustangs (34-21), who now must wait to see if they receive an invitation to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Opening Round, which takes place between May 10-14.

Charlie Gillies was handed the loss in the Mustangs’ second game, a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Concordia.

In game three, TMC was eliminated by Westmont with a 7-4 loss.

TMC trailed by two after the first, and were down four before scoring three in the sixth to pull within 4-3.

But it was as close as they would get.

Women’s tennis

The tennis team has had a rough time of it this season, but it ended things on a high note.

The Mustangs swept Biola 9-0 to improve to 4-15 overall on the season and 4-12 in GSAC play.

Abbie Zaretsky (6-2, 6-0), Tiffany Man (6-0, 7-5), Karli Foerstel (6-2, 6-0), Taylor Forstall (6-1, 6-1), Maggie Becker (6-4, 6-4) and Jennifer Keith (6-3, 6-1) swept the six singles sets.

In doubles, Becker and Man (8-5), Foerstel and Zaretsky (8-4 and Keith and Forstall (8-4) swept all three sets to help TMC improve to 4-16 overall, 4-12 in conference play.

Men’s golf

TMC returns to competition for the first time since early April when it takes part in the NAIA Regional Championship tournament beginning today and running through Tuesday at Black Horse Golf Course in Seaside.
