SAN DIEGO - The 17th-ranked UC San Diego women's tennis team won all three doubles matches, but was swept in singles play as No. 25 Point Loma earned a 6-3 upset victory Wednesday at PLNU Tennis Courts.

UCSD fell to 8-14 with the loss, while PLNU improved to 11-10.

The Tritons jumped out to a 3-0 lead following doubles play.

At No. 1, the 17th-ranked duo of Kyra Scott and Paula Chou defeated Hope Penner and Regina Koch by a score of 8-3. In the second spot, Nava Nowamooz and Shannon Theisen downed Maika Adair and Hillary Ramage, 8-6. Tara Vanooteghem and Laura Wilke fought for a 9-7 win against Preethika Venugopal and Sharon Reibstein at No. 3.

Theisen also took her match to three sets, but fell by scores of 4-6, 6-1 and 7-5 against Ramage at No. 5.
