Urbana, Ill. - UCLA women's tennis players Skylar Morton and Robin Anderson won their round of 16 doubles match on Friday to earn a spot in Saturday's quarterfinals at the NCAA Individual Championships, which is being contested this week at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex on the campus of the University of Illinois.

Anderson and Morton booked their place in the quarterfinals with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Kansas State's Karla Bonacic and Petra Niedermayerova on Friday. Third-seeded Patricia Veresova and Mary Weatherholt of Nebraska await Anderson and Morton in the quarterfinals. That match is scheduled for Saturday at 3:00 p.m. (CST). Anderson and Morton are looking for UCLA's first NCAA doubles championship since 2008 (Lin/Zalameda).

Anderson, who was UCLA's last remaining player in the NCAA singles draw in Illinois, was upset in the round of 16 on Friday, falling to Weatherholt in three sets. After winning the first set in a tiebreaker, Anderson was unable to fend of Weatherholt the rest of the way, as she lost the final 12 games in a 6-7(4), 6-0, 6-0 loss. Anderson was aiming to become UCLA's first NCAA singles champion since Keri Phebus in 1995.

UCLA's last remaining player on the men's side, Marcos Giron, was beaten in his round of 16 match on Friday. Like Anderson, Giron won the first set but was unable to hold on in the end, suffering a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 loss to Soren Hess-Olesen of Texas. Giron's loss concludes UCLA's involvement in the tournament on the men's side.
