Wildcats fall to No. 10 Stanford.
April 3, 2009
No. 59 Arizona (10-6, 1-3 Pac 10) fell to the 10 ranked Cardinal (14-3, 4-1 Pac 10) 7-0 Friday in Palo Alto.
In the No. 2 spot, senior Danielle Steinberg and freshman Sarah Landsman fell to Carolyn McVeigh and Jessica Nguyen 9-8 (5), and in the No. 3 spot, junior Ariane Masschelein and sophomore Jane Huh fell to Logan Hansen and Veronica Li 8-3.
'Stanford is a good team, but we feel that we could have done a better job closing in on opportunities,' Said head coach Vicky Maes, 'We didn't execute our points very well in the doubles, which cost us the doubles point.'
In the No. 4 spot, junior Ariane Masschelein fell to Veronica Li 6-1, 6-2, which clinched the game for the Cardinal.
'In singles, we had our chances at 2,3, and 6 but after close first sets, we were unable to gain enough momentum,' Maes continued, 'We hope to do a better job tomorrow against Cal.'
Tomorrow's match against the 8 ranked Cal team is set to start at noon.
