LOS ANGELES - Members of the UCLA women's tennis team saw their first action of the fall season this past weekend, competing in the pre-qualifying of the ITA Riviera/All-American Championships at UCLA. The qualifying portion of the tournament begins on Tuesday at the Riviera Country Club.
Freshman Ashley Joelson didn't drop a set in three pre-qualifying singles matches over the weekend to advance to Tuesday's qualifying. She opened up with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Minnesota's Ida Malmberg, and then went on to defeat Ristine Olson of Texas (6-4, 6-3) and Lana Krasnopolsky of Boston College (6-4, 6-3).
Joelson was the only Bruin player to make it through pre-qualifying, as sophomore Elizabeth Lumpkin fell in her opening singles match. In doubles action, sophomore Tracy Lin and Lumpkin were upset in the first round.
