LOS ANGELES - In a battle between last year's co-Pac-10 Champions, the No. 11 Stanford women's tennis team posted a 6-1 road victory over No. 9 UCLA on Friday afternoon at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.

Stanford (12-2; 3-0 Pac-10) began the afternoon by claiming the doubles point with two straight wins at court Nos. 1 and 2. The Cardinal managed to pull off a big upset at court No. 1, where No. 17 Hilary Barte and Lindsay Burdette downed the Bruins' second-ranked duo of Andrea Remynse/Yasmin Schnack, 8-1. An 8-3 Stanford win at court No. 2 followed, giving the Cardinal the point. The Bruins' lone doubles win came at the No. 3 spot, where Ashley Joelson and Maya Johansson downed Logan Hansen/Veronica Li, 8-7(3).

Already down 1-0 heading into singles, the Bruins suffered another setback when it was learned that Schnack would be unable to play singles due to illness.

Stanford would take advantage, moving out to a 2-0 lead when Carolyn McVeigh downed Bruin freshman Carling Seguso, 6-1, 6-4 at court No. 5. UCLA's Stephanie Wetmore, who was not even listed in the singles lineup until Schnack pulled out, actually picked up the lone singles win for UCLA on Friday, downing Hansen, 6-4, 7-5 at court No. 6 to cut the lead to 2-1.

Stanford, however, won the next four singles matches to take the 6-1 victory.

UCLA (13-4; 1-1 Pac-10) will host No. 8 Cal on Saturday at Noon.
