El Camino College’s Kiana Takahashi/Melissa Euyoque have marked themselves as the first recipients of the AVCA Beach Pair of the Week.
Takahashi/Euyoque earned the honor this week after going undefeated in their opening matches as the team’s #5 pairing. The team dropped just one set in their 3-0 weekend. The team started with a 2-1, (21-19, 17-21, 15-10) win over Orange Coast’s Georgia Grisham/Enjelica Glattli.

The wins also helped the overall team to win, as El Camino is now undefeated as a team with 3-2 victories over each opponent.
