Tennis players Alajeely and Dreux earn All-American honors

Irvine Valley women's tennis players Halla Alajeely and Fiorella Dreux were recently named 2018 California JUCO All-Americans by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Alajeely, a freshman for the Lasers this past season, earned the honors in both singles and doubles.

Dreux, a sophomore, was picked as JUCO All-American in doubles.

Alajeely had already been named the singles co-Most Valuable Player of the Orange Empire Conference and Alajeely and Dreux were picked as the Most Valuable doubles team of the conference.

Alajeely, who was also chosen as a regional Rookie of the Year for community colleges, reached the semifinals of the CCCAA State Championship in singles at the Ojai 118th Annual Tournament at the end of the season.

On the season, she had a record of 15-2 in singles. And one of those losses came because of retirement due to injury.

Teaming up in doubles, Alajeely and Dreux reached the quarterfinals at the state event.

Alajeely and Dreux ended up with a record of 14-4 on the year in doubles as IVC's No. 1 team.

And the duo helped Irvine Valley finish with a record of 13-4 overall and take second in conference with a 8-2 mark. The team made the semifinals of the CCCAA Team Dual Playoffs and lost to eventual state champion Cerritos.

Dreux recently signed with Division II Shorter University in Georgia.
