Jan. 30, 2004

Tempe, AZ- The No. 17 Arizona State Women's Tennis team began their season on the right foot with a decisive 7-0 sweep of the Pacific Tigers.

The match began with two of three ASU doubles teams winning 8-1 with Cindy Sureephong and Wendy Pilecka coming in with an 8-5 win to sweep doubles.

In singles play, the Sun Devils proved just as flawless with freshmen Kady Pooler and Rebecca Rankin finishing their matches swiftly with scores of 6-1, 6-1.

The only upper-classman to compete in singles, Joslynn Burkett, followed their lead with a 6-0, 7-5 win over Pacific's Katharina Heil.

In the last match of the day, freshman Sabrina Capannolo dug out the final victory for the Devils with a 7-6, 3-6 (10-5) tiebreaker.

The Devils hope to continue their perfect season on Sunday against the Hoosiers of Indiana (3-0) who last week upset No. 10 Tennessee 4-3.

The match will start at 11:00 am at the Whiteman Tennis Center in Tempe, AZ.
