Triton and Sea Lions Rained Out Again
LA JOLLA, Calif. - Wednesday afternoon's women's tennis match between No. 18 University of California San Diego and No. 21 Point Loma Nazarene University has been postponed a second time due to rain in the forecast.
The pivotal regional tilt was originally supposed to be played last Thursday, Feb. 14, at UC San Diego's Northview Tennis Courts, but was rescheduled due to heavy rain. It was moved to Wednesday at 2 p.m., but adverse weather is again expected, so the city rivals will try again next Wednesday, Feb. 27, still at 2 p.m. on North Campus in La Jolla.
The teams still also meet a second time on the Point Loma campus on Monday, April 8, at 3 p.m.
In the meantime, UC San Diego (1-3) still continues a season-long seven-match homestand with a pair of important contests this weekend against other West Region foes. The Tritons welcome in Stanislaus State (3-0) this Friday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m., and Sonoma State (0-1) on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 1 p.m. Admission is free into Northview Tennis Courts. Parking on campus is free on Sunday, but permits are required on Friday.
In the initial Oracle/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) West Region poll, UC San Diego is rated fourth, Point Loma fifth, Sonoma State sixth and Stanislaus State 10th. Four teams from the West gain entry into the 2019 NCAA Division II Championship. A new Oracle/ITA Division II national poll is expected later on Wednesday.
