No. 10 Stanford Blanks No. 59 Arizona 7-0 For 146th Straight Home Win

April 3, 2009

STANFORD, Calif.- No. 10 Stanford notched its fifth shutout of the year on Friday afternoon, blanking No. 59 Arizona 7-0 at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium.

The Cardinal, which has won nine of its last 10 matches, is now 14-3 overall and 4-1 in Pac-10 play. The Wildcats dropped to 10-6 overall and 1-3 in league competition.

Stanford is navigating through a stretch that features six of its next seven matches at home to close out the month of April.

That's good news for the Cardinal, which extended its home winning streak at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium to an unthinkable 146 in a row (118 in the regular season) following Friday's shutout of the Wildcats.

The Cardinal's last loss in a home dual match occurred more than 10 years ago, in the form of a 5-4 setback to No. 4 California on Feb. 27, 1999.

Stanford took a 1-0 lead against Arizona with a clean sweep of the doubles point, led by an 8-2 win at the No. 1 spot from the 11th-ranked duo of Hilary Barte and Lindsay Burdette.

Carolyn McVeigh coasted past Claire Rietsch 6-0, 6-2 at the No. 5 position to give Stanford a 2-0 lead before Barte won her team-leading 25th match of the year with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Danielle Steinberg at the No. 1 spot.

Leading 3-0, Veronica Li's 6-1, 6-2 triumph over Ariane Masschelein at No. 4 turned out to be the clincher.

Stanford's homestand continues tomorrow against No. 21 Arizona State at 12 p.m.
