Women's Tennis Wins Pac-10

After overcoming a season of injuries, #6 ranked UCLA women's tennis (17-5; 7-1 Pac-10) has won the Pac-10 title for the first time in school history. They clinched a share (with either Stanford or Cal) earlier today with a 5-2 win over #10 USC (17-6; 5-3) on Senior Day.

The day began with the Bruins taking the double's point. (I'm not sure how, as I wasn't there yet, and there's no story yet, so that'll have to wait.) In singles play, freshman Andrea Remynse extended the lead to 2-0 with a simple 6-1, 6-1 victory in the #3 position. The Trojans caught back up with a win in the #4 slot, beating junior Ashley Joelson in straight sets. Senior Alex McGoodwin then put the Bruins on the brink of victory with a win as #6.

Soon after, fellow senior Tracy Lin (ranked #32 nationally) clinched the match with a straight set victory of her own, despite early jitters in each set. Elizabeth Lumpkin added gloss to the final scorline with a victory in the #5 match after coming back from losing the first set. Unfortunately, it was not a perfect day for the seniors, as Pac-10 Player of the Week and national #11 Riza Zalameda fell in the third set, 5-7, 7-6, 10-8 with the match already decided.

This win was the second over USC on the year for the women's tennis team, the first time they swept the Trojans since 2000. Next up for the team is the NCAA tourney, with selections announced in two weeks. Several Bruins will also presumably compete in the individual Pac-10 Championship tourney next weekend in Ojai.

Update [2008-4-19 16:48:46 by jaffabruin]: They've got an official report now on the UCLA website, with some pics.
