UCLA's Lin and Zalameda win NCAA doubles title

This afternoon, UCLA seniors Tracy Lin and Riza Zalameda won the NCAA women's tennis doubles championship! This news comes just six days after UCLA's women's tennis team won the team championship (there are separate titles for team, doubles, and singles).

From UCLABruins.com :

UCLA's Tracy Lin and Riza Zalameda became the sixth team in school history to capture the NCAA Doubles Championship, posting a three-set victory over Fresno State's Melanie Gloria/Tinesta Rowe at Tulsa's Michael D. Case Tennis Center on Monday.

Lin and Zalameda, seeded No. 1 in the NCAA Doubles draw, posted a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 victory over the second-seeded tandem of Gloria and Rowe in Monday's final. They are the first Bruin team to capture the NCAA Doubles title since Daniela Bercek and Lauren Fisher in 2004.

This championship is not a team title, and so it doesn't add in number to UCLA's 102 NCAA team championships. However, it is an amazing achievement in its own right that everyone in Bruins Nation can be proud of! I am extremely happy for Tracy - I'm also a senior at UCLA, and I have known her since freshman orientation. She is a great student and an even better person!

By the way, UCLA fans should take note that our last two championship-winning teams were led by Anaheim Canyon High School alumni - Courtney Mathewson (women's water polo) and Tracy Lin. Since we have Jerime Anderson, another Canyon Comanche, coming to UCLA next year, maybe this is a premonition that the men's basketball team will hang a 12th banner in Pauley Pavilion in the very near future!
