DAVIS, Calif. -
Gretchen Schantz and Ally Muller each captured two victories to lead UC Davis to a 6-3 victory over Saint Mary's in a women's tennis match Saturday afternoon at Hickey Courts.
With the victory the Aggies win their third straight match and improve to 3-2 on the season.
Play began with UC Davis sweeping the three doubles matches for the second straight day. Janice Salomon and Nancy Mok rallied for a 9-7 victory at No.1 over Megan Schulman and Lindsay Herdon-Ortega. Schantz and Muller then teamed for an 8-6 win over Nicole Hunstock and Kate Harden at No.3 while Kerri Roemer and Audrey Wingo had little trouble with Allia and Elfring at No.3, winning 8-1.
In singles play, the Aggies captured wins at No.'s 3, 4, and 6 to secure the victory. Schantz needed a super-tiebreaker in the third set to defeat Hunstock, 4-6, 7-6 (10-7). Muller won in straight sets at No.4, defeating Schulman 6-2, 6-2 and Amanda Wise defeated Lisanne Elfring, 6-0, 6-2 at No.6.
"It's always nice to beat Saint Mary's because they are always so tough," said Aggie Head Coach Bill Maze. "They were short-handed today, but I think our kids did a great job of playing their points correctly.
"Our doubles are looking better and better and that's always satisfying," he added. "This win puts us in a good mental frame of mind for tomorrow's match against (Cal State) Bakersfield."
The Aggies host Cal State Bakersfield on Sunday at Hickey Courts, beginning at 10 a.m.
