Cardinal one win shy of the hat trick.
Jan. 31, 1998
EUGENE, OR - The defending national champion and fifth-ranked Stanford women's tennis team completed the second leg of its grueling three-match road trip (in three days) with a 7-0 win over Washington State. The Cardinal's trip, which began in Eugene, Ore. before moving on to Pullman, Wash., will come to a close tomorrow in Seattle, Wash. against Washington. The win, Stanford's 23rd straight, improved the Cardinal's record to 4-0 on the season.
Stanford won in straight sets in four of the six singles matches, highlighted by sophomore Teryn Ashley's 6-1, 6-2 win over Patrycia Gajdzik at the No. 3 position. Ashley, currently ranked 10th in the nation, ran her season overall record to 15-2 and still remains perfect for her career in dual match play (26-0).
In doubles play, Stanford won all three matches - two of which were hotly contested. At the No. 1 slot, Anne Kremer and Ashley, the ninth-ranked duo in the country, fended off Erica Perkins and Andrea Reisz 8-6. The Cardinal combination of Julie Scott and Ania Bleszynski, ranked No. 7, cruised past its opponent at No. 2 by a score of 8-1. At No. 3, Jennifer Heiser and Sarah Pestieau continued their impressive run with a narrow 8-6 victory over Gajdzik and Tamara Filipovic, running their record to 7-1 overall and a perfect 3-0 in dual match play.
