Cougar Tennis Hosts Oregon this weekend.

Feb. 20, 2002

The Washington State women's tennis team hosts the No.60 Oregon Ducks Sunday in Lewiston, Idaho. The Cougars, ranked 30th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's preseason rankings, are 1-2 this season. The Ducks are 6-1 heading into the match.

'We traditionally play very tough matches against Oregon,' said coach Cari Groce. 'They are a very good team and I think they are better than their ranking shows.'

The match will be played indoors at the Lewis-Clark State tennis courts.

The Cougars are anchored by Erica Perkins, a senior ranked 38th, and Stacy McKenna, a sophomore ranked 50th nationally. Combined they form the No. 22 doubles team.

The ITA ranked McKenna ninth in the Northwest region. Perkins is ranked 12th, while Lorena Arias is ranked 29th in the region. McKenna and Perkins form the sixth-ranked team in the region. Arias and doubles partner Chris Martinez are ranked 12th. Sophomore Zorana Roganovic and freshman Zsofi Fodor are tied for 14th for this region.

The Cougars next competition will be against the Utah Utes March 3rd in Salt Lake City. Washington State will also face Brigham Young University March 4th in Provo.
