No. 57 Anteaters Outlast Mustangs, Weather in 4-0 Win

Franziska Goettsching scored a straight-set singles win.

IRVINE, Calif. --- UCI managed to dodge the storm and run its Big West record to 3-0 in a shortened sweep of Cal Poly, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at Anteater Tennis Stadium.

The 11:00 a.m.-scheduled match was delayed until 1:30 p.m. due to rain and court conditions, but the weather brightened up in the afternoon to let the two sides square off.

All three doubles matches were tightly-contested. Marivick Mamiit and Sarah Stadfelt would clinch it at No. 3 with an 8-6 defeat giving UCI (5-5, 3-0) the early 1-0 advantage.

Sarah Gong quickly cleaned up at No. 2 singles winning 6-0, 6-3. Stadfelt and Franziska Goettsching would finish simultaneously to give UCI the final two points before the match was called.

The 'Eaters continue Big West play with CSUN visiting on Sat. March 8 for an 11:00 a.m. match.
