UCLA and Tulsa Advance at ITA Kick-Off Weekend

Jan. 29, 2010

LOS ANGELES - Both the UCLA and Tulsa women's tennis teams posted wins at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on Friday to advance to the second round of play at ITA Kick-Off Weekend, an event held across the country to determine which teams will earn a spot in next month's ITA National Team Indoors.

In the day's opening match, Tulsa posted a 4-1 victory over Pepperdine. The Golden Hurricane actually lost the doubles point before winning four straight singles matches. It marked the second loss for the Waves at the LATC this week, as UCLA defeated Pepperdine, 5-0 in the season opener for both teams on Wednesday.

UCLA's match with UNLV on Friday was fairly routine, with the No. 12 Bruins taking a 4-0 victory over the No. 41 Rebels. UNLV, however, did put up a fight in singles, as the Rebels were leading on two courts when play was suspended. Singles winners for the Bruins were Andrea Remynse, Stephanie Hoffpauir and Nina Pantic.

ITA Kick-Off Weekend continues tomorrow with four more matches. The men begin play with South Florida facing Pepperdine at 9:00 a.m. followed by UCLA taking on Hawai'i at Noon. UCLA and Tulsa will meet in the second round of women's play at 3:00 p.m., while UNLV and Pepperdine round out the day with a consolation match beginning at 6:00 p.m.

All matches are free to the public. They can also be followed live online by clicking HERE.
