Tempe, AZ - The Arizona State Women's Tennis Team suffered another loss on the season after facing off against the 12th-ranked UCLA Bruins Saturday afternoon at Tempe's Whiteman Tennis Center.
The day started off well for the Devils as they swept doubles from the Bruins with the 21st-ranked Devil duo of Lauren Colalillo and Kady Pooler leading off with a tough 9-8 win over the 3rd-ranked Daniela Bercek and Riza Zalameda.
Their fellow Devil duos followed in their footsteps with Sabrina Capannolo and Jessica Leith winning 9-7 over Laura Gordon and Alex McGoodwin, and Joslynn Burkett and Wendy Pilecka taking down Tracy Lin and Sarah Gregg 8-1.
While the Devils looked to continue the streak into singles, the Bruins proved to be too strong for them as they took five out of the six singles matches on the day.
The sole win for the Devils came from sophomore Kady Pooler who stepped up to beat Alex McGoodwin in straight sets 7-6, 6-3.
UCLA travels to Eugene, Oregon next week to take on the Ducks on Apr. 2.
