SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - After suffering their first conference loss of the season Monday in San Diego, the UC Davis women's tennis team got back on the winning track with a 9-0 victory over Cal State San Bernardino in a California Collegiate Athletic Association match Tuesday afternoon at the Coyote courts.

With the win the Aggies improve to 8-5 on the season, 6-1 in CCAA play. CSUSB falls to 6-7 overall, 0-7 in conference action.

UC Davis swept the opening three doubles matches as Jennifer Fong and Christy Battig at No.2 and Amanda Wise and Ashley Lehman at No.3 posted identical 8-1 victories. At No.1, Ally Muller and Nancy Mok captured an 8-4 win over Alicia Brown and Jennifer Newman.

In singles play the Aggies captured all six matches in straight sets. Muller posted a 6-1, 6-4 win over Brown at No.1 while Mok had little trouble with Jennifer Newman at No.2, winning 6-1, 6-1. No.4 Yuka Otaka also earned a 6-1, 6-1 win, defeating Sarah Majors while Audrey Wingo cruised to a 6-0, 6-1 win over Mallory Bailey at No.5. Luna Tieu won her second straight match with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Kristin Newman while Fong earned a 6-2, 7-5 win over Heather Lehman at No.3.

"We hit the ball well today," said Aggie head coach Bill Maze. "Our match in San Diego helped us as both were played on fast courts. I think having played on the fast surface yesterday really prepared us for today's match."

UC Davis concludes its three-match roadswing through Southern California on Wednesday with another CCAA match at Cal Poly Pomona. Matchtime is set for 10:30 a.m.
