NCAA women's tennis: Stanford edges USC in five-hour classic; Cal and UCLA also advance
Talk about a looooooonng day for the folks in Urbana, Ill. Stanford and Cal took a combined nine hours to advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women's Tennis Championships with Round of 16 victories Friday, while UCLA didn't get on the court until 11:25 p.m. local time, more than four hours after its scheduled start with Michigan. Eventually, the Bruins joined the Cardinal and Golden Bears in the Elite 8 of women's tennis, giving the Pac-12 three teams in the quarterfinals on Sunday.
The Gators have won the last two national championships, but I'm sure ITA Regional Coach of the Year Amanda Augustus will have a plan up her sleeve...

The Women of Troy fought valiantly in defeat and finished their season at 23-3. Stanford moves on to square off against fourth-seeded Georgia Sunday at 10 a.m. PT. A chance now for the Card to get some revenge for the women's basketball team, which lost to the Lady Bulldogs in the Sweet 16 this spring.
