March 1, 2002
SALT LAKE CITY - The 12th ranked Washington women's tennis team dropped only one set in six singles matches Friday en route to a 7-0 sweep of host Utah at the Eccles Tennis Center.
Washington improved to 10-1 and kept pace with the best start in school history. The 1975 Husky squad, which also had a 10-1 record, played only 12 matches and finished with an 11-1 mark for the season. Utah had its two-match winning streak snapped and fell to 5-3.
A native of Jakarta, Indonesia, Sumantri has registered a perfect 11-0 doubles record since joining the team in January. Sumantri improved her singles record to 4-2 with a 6-0, 6-0 blanking of Allison Hansen in the No. 6 position.
Gray won her No. 3 singles match over Irini Kotoglou by a 6-3, 6-2 count.
Sophomore Claire Carter, listed 66th in the national singles rankings, posted a 7-6, 6-2 No. 1 singles win over Ronneberg. Senior Ilona Kordonskaya was a 7-6, 6-1 victor over Esrock in No. 2 singles. In No. 4 singles, Husky junior Andrea Coulter beat Ellen Svensson 6-1, 6-1.
The Utes' lone set victory came in No. 5 singles as Cassie Kasteler won the second set during a 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 match loss to Washington sophomore Erin Hoe.
The 31st-ranked UW tandem of Carter and junior Darija Klaic dispatched Kasteler and Svensson 8-2 in No. 1 doubles. Washington's No. 3 doubles duo, Coulter and Kordonskaya, defeated Kotoglou and Hansen 8-2.
The Huskies remain in Utah to compete Saturday against 52nd-ranked Brigham Young in Provo.
