UC Davis Has Little Trouble In Defeating UC Santa Cruz, 8-1

April 4, 2004

DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis swept the opening three doubles matches then took five of six singles en route to the 8-1 victory over UC Santa Cruz in a non-conference women's tennis match Sunday afternoon at Hickey Courts.

With the win the Aggies fall to 10-6 this season.

The day began with Ally Muller and Nancy Mok cruising to an 8-2 win over Katie Frick and Courtney Armstrong at No.1 doubles. Jennifer Fong and Christy Battig then made it 2-0 as they defeated Sara Moglen and Jocelyn Werner, 8-5, at No.2 while Amanda Wise and Ashley Lehman closed out doubles play with a 9-7 win over Erin Ness and Angel Zabala at No.3.

In singles play Wise quickly made it 4-0 UC Davis as she defeated Ness 6-1, 6-0 at No.6. Muller also posted as straight-set win as she beat Frick, 6-1, 6-4 at the top spot while Audrey Wingo and Yuka Otaka posted identical 6-3, 6-1 victories. Wingo defeated Werner at No.4 while Otaka beat Zabala at No.5. Fong dropped her middle set but captured the match tiebreaker in a 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, (10-8) win over Moglen at No.3.

UC Santa Cruz picked up its only win of the day when Armstrong defeated Mok at No.2, 3-6, 6-4, (10-5). "This was the best Santa Cruz team we have played since I've been at UC Davis," said Aggie head coach Bill Maze. "It was a fun match, but sweeping the doubles just sets the tone for the rest of the day. It's tough for any team to come back from 3-0 down and it gave us a lot of confidence heading into singles play."

UC Davis will next be in action on April 13 when it hosts San Jose State at Hickey Courts at 2:30 p.m.
