LA JOLLA, Calif. - The No. 22 University of California San Diego women's tennis program has canceled its match at Cal State LA on Saturday, March 2, due to rain in the forecast. The contest was supposed to begin at noon. It will not be made up.

UC San Diego, now 4-3 after four straight victories, awaits a difficult week ahead where, weather permitting, head coach Liz LaPlante's charges will play three top-five opponents over three days. The Tritons host No. 1 Barry on Wednesday, March 6, No. 5 Academy of Art on Thursday, March 7, and No. 4 Hawai'i Pacific on Friday, March 8.
