No. 8 Women's Tennis Defeat No. 9 UCLA in an Incredible Match

Feb. 21, 2003

Tempe, AZ - The No. 8 Arizona State Women's Tennis team captured yet another incredible victory Friday afternoon at the Whiteman Tennis Center in Tempe.

The No. 9 UCLA Bruins played well, but in the end the Sun Devils were able to claim another win for their currently undefeated season at 6-0.

Things started off intense with the Sun Devils digging in and taking the doubles point away with two great wins, with ASU's Megan Yeats and Joslynn Burkett defeating Laura Gordon and Sarah Gregg 8-3.

Adria Engel and Lauren Colalillo followed up with determination as they defeated Sara Walker and Lauren Fisher 9-7.

In singles action, the competition was no less fierce as almost all of the matches were close with one competitor just barely nudging out the other.

Joslynn Burkett came up big for the Sun Devils taking a 7-5, 6-4 win over the Bruin's Anya Loncaric.

Lauren Colalillo may have had the match of the day with her huge over-the-top effort and her steely determination to win in a comeback victory of 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 over Laura Gordon.

The Sun Devils will continue with their next match of strong competition on Saturday against the No.3-ranked USC Trojans.

The match is set to be played in Tempe's Whiteman Tennis Center at 12 p.m.
