With freshman Jennifer Brady out of Wednesday's lineup, UCLA had to do some shuffling in doubles. Brady's normal partner, Robin Anderson, played at court No. 3 with Kelly Shaffer, as the duo went on to a 6-1 victory over Lisa Piller and Reka Rohonyi. The Bruins clinched the point at the No. 1 position, where Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips were 6-1 winners over Miya Jin and Jessica Perez.
UCLA was equally as dominant in singles play, winning all six matches in straight sets. Anderson, the nation's No. 1 player, paced the Bruins in singles, as she was first off the court following a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Jin at court No. 1. A 6-2, 6-2 victory by Harrison over 97th-ranked Lauri Mueller at court No. 4 then brought UCLA within a point of clinching the win. Ninth-ranked Chanelle Van Nguyen would provide that clinching win when she downed Perez, 7-5, 6-1.
Other singles winners on the day for UCLA were McPhillips (court No. 3), Courtney Dolehide (court No. 5) and Shaffer (court No. 6).
UCLA returns to the Los Angeles Tennis Center tomorrow, hosting UC Irvine at 1:30 p.m.
