Doubles Tandem Still Alive at Saint Mary's Invitational

Oct. 19, 2002

Moraga, Calif. - After the two lone remaining singles players lost their matches today, Carla Arguelles and Nicole Havlicek teamed to together to keep the Bears alive in doubles competition, propelling themselves into the semifinals of the Saint Mary's Invitational in Moraga.

In singles play, Arguelles defeated Loyola Marymount's Penka Fileva 6-0, 6-4, in the round of 16 before dropping her round of 8 match to Loyola Marymount's Edith Pakay, 6-4, 6-1. Arguelles will team with Havlicek in the semifinals of doubles play on Sunday. If the pair wins that match, they will play the winner of the match between Janell Kaloi/Christine Limbers (Santa Clara) and Margarita Karnaukhova/Roberta Fessenko (Sacramento State).

Jessica Shu did not fare as well as her teammate, losing to Nevada-Reno's Vania Apodaca in the round of 16 singles action.
