With California Pacific Conference action starting with a full slate of matches this weekend, all the conference programs prepared with tournaments and road trips. Simpson swept all three of its matches at Mills College, running the Red Hawks' win streak to four. Antelope Valley won both of its contests last week, going on the road to take down The Master's and returning home to blank Caltech. The Pioneers have already amassed 10 wins in the preseason, far outpacing last year's win total of four. Benedictine-Mesa split four games at the Providence Tournament in Montana, and Cal Pac powers Embry-Riddle and La Sierra won their only matches of the week.
