San Diego, CA - The Arizona State Women's Tennis Team continued play today at the ITA Women's Western Regional at San Diego State University.
While the Devils played well in their Singles matches, it was the Devil duo of Joslynn Burkett and Wendy Pilecka who were the stars as they fought all the way to the championship match, which will be played Monday against the Zalameda/Bercek number 2 ranked duo from UCLA.
Vana Tomas tried to advance to the Quarterfinals of Singles competition where she fell in the Round of 16 to UCLA's Elizabeth Lumpkin 7-5, 6-4.
Jessica Leitch tried to escape the Round of 16, but also suffered the same fate as Tomas, with a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Anna Bentzer of UCI.
