DAVIS, Calif. - Megan Tiegs, Gabriela Ruiz and Anna Skogerboe each captured two wins as the University of San Francisco defeated UC Davis 7-2 in a non-conference women's tennis match Friday afternoon at Hickey Courts.

With the loss the Aggies fall to 3-3 on the season while USF improves to 3-3.

USF Came out strong in doubles play, taking two of three matches. Ties and Ruiz got things going with an 8-4 win over Jennifer Fong and Christy Battig at No.2. Skogerboe and Michelle Duncan then made it 2-0 with an 8-6 win over Amanda Wise and Ashley Lehman at No.3. The Aggies earned their doubles point when Ally Muller and Audrey Wingo escaped with a 9-8 win over Camille Pamart and Joana Ferreira De Almedda Laranjihna at the top spot.

In singles play the Dons benefitted from three three-set victories to take five of six matches to close out the win. USF won at the top five spots, with Ruiz leading the way at No.3 with a 6-2, 6-0 win over Yuka Otaka. Tiegs posted a 7-5, 6-4 win over Fong at No.2, but the remaining three matches went the distance. At the top spot, Pamart rallied for a 6-1, 5-7, 7-6 (7-1) win over Muller while Ferreira De Almedda Laranjihna came from a set down to defeat Audrey Wingo, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. Skogerboe closed out the match with a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win over Luna Tieu at No.5.

"It wa sa good match today," said Aggie head coach Bill Maze. "It was the same score as last year but I think it was a much closer match this time.

 

 

"I was very impressed with our No.1 doubles team of Ally Muller and Audrey Wingo," Maze continued. "Audrey stepped in for an injured Nancy Mok and they didn't skip a beat. It was a good win for them. And it was nice to see Amanda (Wise) get a win at No.6 singles. There were definitely some bright spots today."

UC Davis will next be in action on Sunday when it continues its homestand against Division I Nevada. Matchtime is set for 11 a.m.
