STANFORD, Calif. - After the opening day of action from the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional Championships in Stanford, Calif., five UC Davis women's tennis players and two doubles teams will continue their respective singles and doubles runs when action resumes. 

As the No. 15 seed in the singles main draw, Megan Heneghan advanced to the Round of 64 where she faced Washington's Riko Shimizu. In that matchup, Shimizu pulled off the upset to advance to Saturday's singles action. 

Consolation matches taking place throughout the second day of action include a 2 p.m. match between Kamila Kecki and Nicolette Wolny (Santa Clara), and a 2:30 p.m. contest involving Heneghan and Cecilia Estandler (Cal).

Claire Meunier, Tiffany Pham and Claire Jaramishian are the Aggies competing in the bottom half of the consolation bracket. Meunier and Pham will take the court at 3:30 p.m. against Sophia Bott (Washington) and Olivia Boija (Sacramento State) respectively. 

Jaramishian will resume her singles run at 30 minutes later against Jasmine Minor (Oregon).

Kecki and Samantha Martino's day will start at 9 a.m. with their round of 32 doubles meeting against Brooke Irish/Marina Nikolic (San Francisco). If victorious, the pair will resume their run Sunday morning in a main draw schedule that features round of 16 and quarterfinal matches. 

Jaramishiam/Meunier's first doubles consolation match against Stephanie Skaras/Nicolette Wolny (Santa Clara) will begin at 11:30 a.m.; Heneghan/Pham will also face Amelia Herring/Lindsey Kostas (Stanford), on their home courts, in their opening round consolation doubles match at the same time.
