LA JOLLA, Calif. - The No. 17 UC San Diego women's tennis team came up short in its home opener against Point Loma Nazarene Monday, falling by a final tally of 7-2 at the Northview Tennis Courts.

PLNU won five of six singles matches and two of three doubles contests in its season opener. UCSD dropped to 0-3 with the loss.

Tritons Samantha Yeung, Tara Vanooteghem, and Jacquelyn Davis all forced three sets in their singles match-ups. Davis was the only one to come out a winner, defeating Kiersten Steinhauer, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3, in the No. 5 spot.

UCSD also secured a victory at No. 3 doubles as Katie Mulloy paired with Laura Wilke to defeat PLNU's Wileen Chui and Samantha Mohr, 8-4.

At No. 1 singles, Melissa Breisacher was narrowly defeated by Maika Adair, 7-5 and 7-6.

"Even though we lost, I am encouraged with the team's improvement, especially in singles," said UCSD head coach Liz LaPlante. "We have some work to do in doubles and after we settle on which teams work the best, we will improve with each match."

PLNU, currently ranked No. 11 in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), is competing in its final season as a member of the NAIA before escalating to an NCAA Division II squad next year.

The Tritons travel to Glendale, Ariz., to compete in the Arizona Invitational Feb. 10-12. They'll take on Dominican, Grand Canyon and Academy of Art.
