Cougars Streak Ends at Five
March 4, 2001
SEATTLE- The No. 17 Washington women's tennis team won five singles matches and all three doubles matches against the No. 53 Washington State Cougars, 6-1, Sunday at the Lloyd Nordstrom Tennis Center.
After upsetting No. 44 BYU 4-3 Saturday in Seattle, the Cougars had a hard time keeping up with the Huskies.
The Cougars only win came from freshman Stacy McKenna at the No. 4 singles position. McKenna downed the Huskies Ilona Kordonskaya 4-6, 6-1, 6-3, to grab the win for the Cougars.
Team captain Tamara Filipovic and junior Erica Perkins upset BYU's No. 22 duo of Jodi Richardson and Brooke Ferney Saturday 8-4, but fell in a hard fought match to the Huskies' No. 15 Darija Klaic and Kristina Kraszewski 8-5 Sunday.
'I think Washington just played better,' head coach Cari Groce said. 'We played a good match, but we just couldn't stay with them. They are the No. 17 team in the country, and I think they showed us why. Overall, we were very pleased with the weekend. We upset a very tough BYU team, and to upset Washington would have been icing on the cake, but it just didn't happen for us. Next week we have a tough match against Oregon, and we'll go after them.'
The Cougars will host the No. 51 Oregon Ducks in Spokane Saturday, March 10.
