In the first day of action at the 2011 PCAC Men's Tennis Tournament, the doubles team of Marlon Thompkins and Ronnel Canlapan won their opening round match against Palomar's Huey/Bryant, 7-6, 6-4.
They now advance to the quarterfinals on Friday afternoon and also qualify to play in the Southern California Regionals on May 5. This is the fifth consecutive year that a team under the direction of Head Coach Brandon Lupian has qualified for the Regionals.
Six different Knights competed in singles action. Canlapan (6-0, 6-2), Thompkins (6-4, 6-2) and Tobe Kernkamp (6-3, 6-0) all won their first round matches, but none advanced past the second round.
