Women's Pac-10 Individual Tennis Championships Results Day One

April 25, 2003

Ojai, California- The 2003 Pac-10 Individual Championships began Thursday afternoon with two intense rounds, in which the Arizona State Women's Tennis Team battled hard and showed what has been seen all season: the Sun Devils are a force to be reckoned with.

In the First-Round Main Draw, the Sun Devils had four competing to move on to the sweet-sixteen round, two of which were successful in doing so.

Though both Cindy Sureephong and Mhairi Brown lost to two ranked opponents, Lauren Colalillo anc Adria Engel were able to put away their opponents, and advance on to the next round.

Sophomore, Lauren Colalillo faced Anya Loncaric of UCLA whom she defeated in a tough 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-4 match, during which fellow Sun Devil, fifth-ranked senior Adria Engel stepped up to play Laura Gordon of UCLA whom she soundly beat 6-2, 6-1.

In the Main Draw's Sweet-Sixteen round both Colalillo and Engel competed well, but only Engel advanced to the next round of eight with a 6-2, 7-7(2) over Oregon's Jamie Marshall.

Engel will play her next match Friday afternoon in the Quarterfinals.

In the Invitational Main Draw, ASU had two Devils competing: Paulie Sabion and Joslynn Burkett.

Although Sabion was unable to advance to the next round Burkett did with a default victory over Arizona's Zorica Zasova.

Burkett then stepped up to defeat Washington's Dinka Hadzic 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(4)to advance on to the round of eight, to be played on Friday afternoon.
