FRESNO, Calif. - After an early morning four hour rain delay, Arizona's women's tennis squad won 10 of its 12 singles matches and all three doubles teams advanced to the second round Friday at the Wathen/Hancock Bulldog Tennis Classic.

In singles play, senior Michelle Gough, junior Lindsay Blau and freshmen Perrine Pernin and Sophie Regnier advanced to the quarterfinals. Gough, seeded third in the tournament, earned a first round bye and defeated San Jose State's Vanessa Pinot in the second round, 6-1, 6-1. Larocque recorded straight sets victories over Loyola Marymount's Hollie Freudenberg, 6-1, 6-2, and Santa Clara's Alison Barr, 6-0, 6-3. Regnier earned a berth in the quarterfinals with wins over Sacramento State's Janice Mota, 6-1, 6-2, and Pacific's Diana D-Audrey, 6-1, 6-3.
