Feb. 10, 2001
TEMPE, Ariz. - The tenth-ranked Arizona State (3-1, 2-1) women's tennis team swept the Ducks of Oregon (3-4, 0-4) at the Whiteman Tennis Center in front of a large crowd, 7-0.
In doubles play, ASU earned its team point by winning two of the three needed matches with help from combos Mhairi Brown/Celena McCoury and Megan Yeats/Cindy Sureephong. After starting off a bit slow, the Brown/McCoury duo picked up some speed to snatch an 8-3 victory on the No. 1 court. The Yeats/Sureephong tandem improved their doubles record to 4-0 with an 8-4 win on the No. 3 court.
In singles action, sophomore Megan Yeats remained undefeated in dual play and improved her overall record to 12-3 with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Oregon's Adeline Arnaud. ASU freshman standout Cindy Sureephong, who improved her dual record to 4-0, defeated Courtney Nagle on the No. 6 court, 6-0, 6-0. Battling the heat of the sun on courts Nos. 1 and 2, ASU's Adria Engel and Karin Palme finally wrapped up their long matches by beating Oregon's Janice Nyland and Monika Gieczys each in three sets.
The Devils will host the University of New Mexico Lobos tomorrow at 12 p.m. (MST) at the Whiteman Tennis Center.
