March 24, 2005
SEATTLE- Washington women's tennis made quick work of Northwest rival Portland, as the 16th-ranked Huskies blanked the Pilots, 7-0, at Bill Quillian Stadium on the UW campus, Thursday afternoon. Washington won the doubles point and all six singles matches in straight sets to improve its overall record to 12-5. Portland dropped to 5-10. The Huskies improved their all-time record over Portland to 15-0.
Washington found itself leading 1-0 after sweeping the three doubles matches. Senior Dea Sumantri and junior Dinka Hadzic earned an 8-2 victory over Cristin Sammis and Sanja Indic at No. 1 doubles. Freshman Allison Rainey and sophomore Saskia Nauenberg followed suit, with an 8-4 win over Alyson Tyson and Lindsey Griffin. On the No. 3 doubles court, sophomore Monika Kolbovic and freshman Tara Simpson, playing together for just the second time this season, defeated the Portland duo of Jaclyn Soltysik and Christie Feyen, 8-4.
Sumantri set the tone for the Huskies when singles play began. Ranked ninth in the nation, the Husky All-American roared past Indic in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0 to pick up her team-leading 24th win of the season. Not long after play finished on Court No. 1, 43rd-ranked Hadzic finished off Cristin, 6-1, 6-0, on court two. Nauenberg, Simpson, and Rainey - all playing up one spot with senior Mugette Ahn out due to injury - also won in straight sets. Junior Stephanie Svanfeldt earned a straight-set victory at No. 6 singles.
