LOS ANGELES, Calif.--The No. 56 Arizona women's tennis team lost 7-0 to No. 8 UCLA Friday afternoon at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.
The Bruin domination began with a sweep of the doubles matches. First to fall were the duo of sophomore Sarah Landsman and Jane Huh, losing 8-0 to the No. 4 ranked pair of Andrea Remynse and Yasmin Schnack at No. 1. In the No. 2 spot, seniors Claire Rietsch and Natalia Toporowska lost 8-1 to Noelle Hickey and Nina Pantic, and at No. 3, sophomores Debora Castany and Natasha Marks fell to Pamela Montez and Carling Seguso 8-3.
In singles, No. 105 ranked Marks lost to No. 5 Schnack 6-2, 6-2 in the No. 1 position, and in the No. 2 spot, Landsman, ranked at No. 84, fell 6-1, 6-2 to No. 31 Andrea Remynse. Losing 6-1 in the first set of her match at No. 3, Rietsch battled to a 7-5 loss in set two to Pamela Montez.
"The Bruins proved to be too strong for us today." Said head coach Vicky Maes, "They took it to us in the doubles and never looked back. We battled hard but they just played too tough. We hope to rebound and play hard against USC tomorrow."
With the loss, Arizona drops to 12-7, 1-5 Pac-10, and UCLA improves to 17-3, 4-1 Pac-10.
Next up, the Wildcats will play their final road match of the regular season against USC on Saturday, April 10 at noon.
