PHOENIX, Ariz. - On the second day of action at the Grand Canyon University Duals, the UC San Diego women's tennis team rolled to an 8-1 victory against Dominican.

UCSD, which holds a No. 32 national ranking, won all three doubles contests and five of six singles matches to improve to 3-1 on the season. Dominican lost its third straight to fall to 1-5.

Freshman Kyra Scott was victorious at both No. 1 doubles and No. 2 singles. She is now 3-0 overall in singles play this season.

Paula Chou, Melinda Chu, Tara Vanooteghem and Jacquelyn Davis also won at singles and doubles. Vanooteghem holds a 4-0 record at the No. 5 singles slot.

The duo of Scott and Melissa Breisacher defeated the Penguins' No. 1 squad of Marissa Frazer and Gaby Verspieren, 8-4. In the No. 2 doubles match, Chou and Davis downed Irina Morozova and Emily Prescott, 8-4. Chu and Vanooteghem had no issues at No. 3, cruising to an 8-1 win against Francesca Katafias and Maria Ariana Paradis.

Dominican earned its only win of the day at No. 1 singles as Morozova took a 6-2, 6-0 victory against Breisacher.

Scott downed Verspieren by scores of 6-2 and 6-0 at No. 2. Chou came from behind at No. 3 against Frazer. After dropping the first set, 7-5, she took the second, 6-3, to force a tiebreaker. The freshman then edged her opponent, 13-11, for the victory.

Chu, Vanooteghem and Davis all won in straight sets at No. 4, No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.
