DAVIS, Calif. — With a 2-0 overall record after match wins against Portland State and Portland last Saturday and Sunday, respectively, the UC Davis women’s tennis team remains at home to host their first of 10 home events in the 2018 season, welcoming Santa Clara’s team to the Marya Welch Tennis Center this Saturday at noon.

Looking back at UC Davis women’s tennis season-opener weekend, the Aggies got a 6-1 victory over Portland State, followed by a next-day 5-2 victory over Portland. In the match with Portland State, UC Davis got all three doubles wins, and five of the six total singles wins; however, three of the six team points were earned via default because the Vikings started the day with an incomplete lineup.

As for the game against Portland, Aggie partners Kristy Jorgensen and Kelsie Bryant, as well as partners Lani-Rae Green and Kristina Breisacher, helped UC Davis to the 1-0 lead for the second time that weekend before going into singles play. From there, the Aggies won four of the six singles matches to secure their team victory.

Santa Clara currently holds a 0-0 overall record, so this weekend’s game will serve as their 2018 season debut. To highlight the Broncos’ players from their 2016-2017 season, current junior Madison Clarke led the Sunnyvale, Calif., university with an 18-6 record in singles play, while doubles tandem of Clarke and Daniella Silva led with a 15-7 record in doubles play. As a team, Santa Clara finished that season with a 7-13 overall record.

The last time UC Davis and Santa Clara met on the courts together was during the 2015-2016 season, where the Broncos defeated the Aggies after starting the dual with the doubles point lead, and concluding it by getting five out of six singles wins.
