PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. - Columbia women's tennis players Bianca Sanon and Tiana Takenaga completed the first round of the pre-qualifying draw at the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships Saturday. Sanon fell in the singles draw, while the pair dropped a close match in doubles.

Takenaga and Sanon played the closest opening round match of the doubles draw against Jen Pfeifler and Jackie Kasler from Auburn. The Southeastern Conference duo though, edged out Columbia's tandem, 9-8(3), to advance.
