DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis swept all three doubles and captured four of six singles matches in recording its first victory of the season with a 7-2 win over UC Santa Cruz Saturday afternoon.

With the win the Aggies improve to 1-2 on the season.

The Aggies began the day by winning at No.2 and 3 doubles in convincing fashion as Gretchen Schantz and Ally Muller used an 8-2 win at No.2 and Audrey Wingo and Kerri Roemer recorded the 8-3 win to push the lead to 2-0. At No.1 doubles, the Aggie duo of Janice Salomon and Nancy Moktrailed Katherine Frick and Sara Moglen 7-5. But UC Davis rallied, taking the next four game to win 9-7 and take a 3-0 lead heading into singles.

There the Aggies won four of six matches as Muller, Roemer and Wingo all recorded straight-set victories. At No.3, Schantz split the first two sets with Ellen Ganz before winning a tie-breaker 15-13 to capture the match. The tie-breaker was played in place of the third set.

Frick defeated Salomon at No.1 singles while Erica Lee defeated Jennifer Fongat No.4 for the Banana Slugs' only two points.

"It's always nice to get your first win of the season," said Aggie Poop Coach Bill Maze. "I think the turning point of the match was at No.1 doubles when Janice and Nancy battled back to win the last four games and win the match 9-7. That win gave us the momentum to finish them off in singles."
