The Tourney Field: The Wildcats will travel to Ojai, Calif. for the 101st annual Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament. Five singles players and two doubles teams will be competing for the Wildcats this weekend. The singles field is broken down into two 32-player barckets - the main draw and invitational draw. Senior Michelle Gough, juniors Sophie Regnier and Laresa Marino, and freshman Debbie Larocque earned berths in the main draw while freshman Perrine Pernin will play out of the invitational field. On the doubles side, Gough will try to defend her doubles title with Regnier in the main draw. Larocque and Marino are seeded in the invitational bracket. In Pac-10 Championship history, the Wildcats have captured two singles championships (Alix Creek in 1992 and 1993) and two doubles titles (Creek and Michelle Oldham in 1992 and Lindsay Blau and Gough in 2000).
