LA JOLLA, Calif. - The 19th-ranked UC San Diego women's tennis team trailed after the doubles bouts, but dominated singles play to come back for a 5-2 victory against Academy of Art Saturday at North Courts.

The win moved UCSD to 11-6 overall. Losers of three straight, ART U fell to 15-4.

Behind by a 2-1 count, the Tritons won the first four singles matches that came off to run away with the come-from-behind win.

Freshman Kyra Scott defeated Michelle Dandik in straight sets, 6-1 and 6-1, at No. 2 to tie the match up at 2-2. Jacquelyn Davis then won her No. 6 contest against Kinga Kurczbuch, 6-0 and 6-1, to put UCSD in the lead. Paula Chou gave the Tritons some breathing room with her 6-1, 6-0 topping of Amal Ben El Hadj at No. 3 and Tara Vanooteghem clinched the win with a 6-0, 6-3 victory over Tamara Kenia at No. 5.

Scott is now 15-1 overall, while Vanooteghem, who has won six straight singles matches, is 15-2 on the season.

Two singles match-ups went unfinished after UCSD secured the winning point.

Scott and Melissa Breisacher paired up to win the No. 1 doubles match, 8-4 against Ben El Hadj and Dandik. The Urban Knights won the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles tilts.

UCSD, which has won three of its last four, hosts Point Loma Nazarene on April 10 at 2:30 p.m. It will be the final home match of the season for the Tritons.
