No. 8 Bruins Register 4-2 Victory over No. 15 ASU

April 9, 2011

Tempe, Ariz. - In a match delayed more than three hours due to rain, the No. 8 UCLA women's tennis team downed No. 15 Arizona State, 4-2 in a modified match at ASU's Whiteman Tennis Center on Saturday.

Due to the weather conditions, only singles was contested on Saturday. UCLA (16-5; 6-1 Pac-10) jumped out to an early 2-0 lead following straight-set victories by Carling Seguso and Andrea Remynse at court Nos. 6 and 3, respectively. Sophomore Pamela Montez then gave the Bruins a 3-0 advantage by beating Michelle Brycki, 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 at court No. 4.

Just one point away from losing, Arizona State (14-6; 4-3 Pac-10) responded with two wins of its own, as Micaela Hein upset 44th-ranked Noelle Hickey, 6-3, 7-5 at court No. 2, and 19th-ranked Kelcy McKenna beat 58th-ranked McCall Jones, 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 at court No. 1.

Fortunately for UCLA, Maya Johansson rallied from a set down at court No. 5, clinching a 4-2 win for the Bruins with a 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 win over Ashlee Brown.

UCLA plays its final two matches of the regular season next week, facing Pepperdine on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in Malibu, and USC on Friday at 3:00 p.m. at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.
