Release: Saturday 04/13/2013 

ROHNERT PARK, Calif. - The 19th-ranked UC San Diego women's tennis team swept the season series against Sonoma State with a 7-2 victory Saturday at SSU Tennis Courts in Northern California.

The win moved UCSD to 13-6 overall, while SSU dropped to 14-8. It was UC San Diego's third straight victory.

The Seawolves' lone lead of the day came early as they won the No. 1 doubles match. It was short-lived, however, as the Tritons took the remaining two doubles contests. At No. 2, Paula Chou and Jacquelyn Davis defeated Lauren Ha and Sheena Johnston, 8-3. The third doubles match-up went to Melinda Chu and Tara Vanooteghem, who topped Lauren Shafer and Megan White, also by an 8-3 count.

Five of the six singles matches went to UCSD as Kyra Scott, Chou, Chu, Vanooteghem and Davis all recorded wins. Scott, playing in her usual No. 2 spot, blanked White, 6-0 and 6-0. Vanooteghem's 6-3, 6-1 win against Shafer at No. 5 clinched the win for the Tritons.

The only match to go past two sets was at No. 3. Chou took the first frame, 6-1, against Chloe Jolliff, but dropped the second, 6-4. The Triton freshman out-lasted her opponent, 12-10, in a marathon tiebreaker.

UCSD also defeated SSU back on March 1, taking an 8-1 decision in La Jolla.

The Tritons stay on the road to play at Cal State Stanislaus on Sunday, April 14 at 9 a.m.
