Irvine Valley's women's tennis team won four of six singles matches and rallied to upset Glendale, 5-4, in its first match of the 2017 season on Tuesday at home.
Glendale was ranked No. 1 in Southern California in the preseason poll put out by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association last November.
Glendale captured two of the three doubles points to start.
Paz and MacDonnell won the final four games of the match.
IVC lost close matches at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles.
But Irvine Valley came back to earn the overall victory with its tough play in singles.
Garcia topped McNall, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 1 singles. McNall was ranked No. 2 in Southern California in singles in the ITA preseason poll.
Morris won, 6-2, 6-3, over Galtsyan at the No. 3 position, Dreux defeated Emmanoulidi, 6-2, 6-3, at No. 4 singles.
And in the deciding match of the day and lone three-set match of the contest, Baize held off Kihara, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, to give IVC the victory.
Irvine Valley plays again next Tuesday at Cerritos at 2 p.m. Cerritos, which won the state dual team title last season, was No. 2 in the ITA preseason rankings.
