LOS ANGELES - Playing its first match since capturing last year's NCAA Championship, the third-ranked UCLA women's tennis team cruised to a 7-0 victory over Cal State Northridge in the season opener for both teams Wednesday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.
Sophomore Andrea Remynse was the lone player from last year's championship team in Wednesday's singles lineup, as she played the first match of her career at the No. 1 position. She dropped just one game en route to a 6-1, 6-0 victory over CSUN's Evgeniya Vertesheva.
The Bruins cruised in doubles, taking wins on all three courts. Remynse and Yasmin Schnack turned in the best performance at court No. 1, posting an 8-0 win over the CSUN duo of Doane/Vertesheva.
UCLA has one more match this week, facing No. 29 Pepperdine this Friday at 1:30 p.m. in Malibu.
