Ojai, Calif. - Top-seeded Jennifer Brady of UCLA moved into the semifinals of the singles draw at the Pac-12 Championships on Friday, posting a straight-set victory in the quaterfinals at the Ojai Valley Athletic Club. UCLA's Courtney Dolehide and Chanelle Van Nguyen also notched a victory to move into the semifinals of the doubles draw.

Brady, who has yet to lose a set in the tournament, recorded a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Cal's Denise Starr on Friday. She will face another Cal player on Saturday, as fifth-seeded Lynn Chi awaits Brady in the semifinals. That match will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Ojai's Libbey Park.
