​Irvine Valley's men's tennis team kept cruising along in the 2014 CCCAA Dual Team South Regional Championship.

The Lasers, seeded first, moved into the regional final with a 5-1 semifinal win over No. 4 Mt. San Jacinto at home on Tuesday.

IVC's No. 1 doubles team of freshmen Jack Divorty and Benjamin Groud played Mt. San Jacinto's top duo of Vitor Galvao and Bruno Campos tough before losing, 8-6.

Irvine Valley then won three straight singles matches to wrap up the overall team victory.

Freshman Max Rumeau breezed, 6-1, 6-1, at No. 6 singles and Divorty won, 6-3, 6-2, at No. 4 singles.
