Stanford, Calif. - For the second consecutive match, the second-ranked Stanford women's tennis team rolled to a 7-0 victory over its opponent. This time the Cardinal blanked No. 10 Washington in a Pac-10 match on Thursday afternoon at the Taube Tennis Stadium to improve their record to 12-1 overall (2-0 Pac-10).
Stanford snapped Washington's 10-match winning streak and handed the Huskies their first Pac-10 loss of the season. Washington falls to 12-2 and 1-1 in conference play.

At No. 3 doubles, Emilia Anderson (Cincinnati, OH) and Story Tweedie-Yates (Redmond, WA) cruised to an 8-2 win to capture the team point.
Freshman Amber Liu (La Mesa, CA), ranked No. 5, picked up Stanford's first singles win, 6-2, 6-1 over 42nd-ranked Carter. Fourth-ranked Alice Barnes (Cambridge, UK) won her 13th-straight match in as many tries by defeating Colleen Gray, 6-4, 6-2.
