Feb. 10, 2005

Stanford, Calif. - No. 1 Stanford (6-0) earned a 5-2 win over No. 41 Sacramento State this afternoon at the Taube Tennis Center, extending the Cardinal's win streak to 35 matches.

Stanford started the afternoon with three-straight wins in doubles as the seventh-ranked duo of Alice Barnes and Erin Burdette improved their dual record to 5-0 with an 8-6 win. The 41st-ranked pair of Whitney Deason and Lejla Hodzic added an 8-5 win to clinch the doubles point, before Theresa Logar and Anne Yelsey added the third win to send the Cardinal into singles action with a perfect slate.

In singles, No. 41 Deason and No. 82 Yelsey gave the Cardinal a 3-0 lead with a pair of two-set wins. Sacramento State's Cecilia Helland gave the Hornets a point with a win at the No. 6 spot, but Stanford sophomore Theresa Logar came back from a 4-6 loss in her first set and earned the win with 6-4 and 6-3 sets to clinch the Cardinal victory. No. 12 Barnes wrapped up the evening with a 6-7(3), 7-6, 6-2 victory to give the Cardinal a 5-2 advantage over Sacramento State.

The Cardinal will be back in action next weekend, when Stanford hosts No. 68 Washington State and No. 11 Washington on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Last week, Stanford defeated Washington 6-1 at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Team Championship.
