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.
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.
