LOS ANGELES - The No. 7 UCLA women's tennis team posted its fourth conference shutout of the season on Friday, taking a commanding 7-0 victory over Arizona at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. With the win, the Bruins improve to 16-5 overall and 5-1 in the Pac-10. The Wildcats fall to 7-15, remaining winless in league play at 0-6.

The Bruins won all three doubles matches, clinching the point when ninth-ranked Tracy Lin and Riza Zalameda notched an 8-3 victory over the Wildcat duo of Claire Rietsch/Daniele Steinberg at court No. 1.

UCLA kept up the momentum in singles play, quickly registering wins on the back three courts to take an insurmountable 4-0 lead. In fact, the Bruins lost a total of just four games at the Nos. 4-6 positions. Bruin senior Elizabeth Lumpkin, ranked No. 94 nationally, clinched the win for UCLA with a 6-1, 6-1 decision over Jane Huh at court No. 4. Alex McGoodwin, who didn't lose a game at court No. 5, and Anna-Viktoria Lind (court No. 6) were also winners.
