Ally Muller Advances To Quarterfinals At Ojai Valley Championships

April 22, 2004

OJAI, Calif. - Sophomore Ally Muller captured both of her singles matches as she advanced to the quarterfinals of the Women's Independent College singles bracket at the 2004 Ojai Valley Championships on Thursday.

Muller began her day with a 6-4, 6-0 win over Whittier's Vika Soshina in the first round then came back in the afternoon to defeat Jen Hansen of Cal Lutheran, 6-1, 6-4. Muller advances to Friday's quarterfinal where she faces Courtney Armstrong of UC Santa Cruz.

Muller's teammate, Nancy Mok, did not make it through her first match, falling to Westmont's Kendyll Whiting. Mok dropped the first set but forced a third when she won a second set tiebreaker. She could not sustain the momentum as Whiting earned the 6-1, 6-7, 6-2 victory.

In doubles play, the Aggie team of Amanda Wise and Ashley Lehman rallied for a three-set win over Claremont's duo of Lisa Atkins and Nellie Hauff, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4. Wise and Lehman move into Friday's second round against Pomona's Whitney Henderson and Kelli Howard.

Play continues at the Ojai Championships through Sunday.
