Cardinal to Compete for Singles and Doubles Titles

April 24, 2004

OJAI, Calif. - The No. 1 Stanford women's tennis team has made its presence known at the 2004 Pac-10 Indvidual and Invitational Tournaments as the Cardinal will appear in both the singles and doubles final matches for both brackets after notching wins in semifinal action on Saturday.

Cardinal sophomore Alice Barnes stands in contention for the 2004 Pac-10 Indvidiual Tournament singles title after notching a 6-1, 6-4 win over USC's Anca Anastasiu in the semifinal round on Saturday. Barnes, ranked No. 12 by the ITA, will face No. 3 Raquel Kops-Jones of California in the championship match.

Barnes, paired with teammate junior Erin Burdette, will also vie for the doubles title against Golden Bears Kops-Jones and Jieun Jacobs. Burdette and Barnes downed Arizona's Dianne Hollands and Maja Mlakar 8-1 to advance to the finals.

In the invitational bracket, freshman Anne Yelsey defeated fellow Cardinal Joanna Kao 6-2, 6-1 in the semifinals and will take on Cal's Jessica Shu in the singles final match.

Stanford's Theresa Logar and Story Tweedie-Yates took the 8-6 victory over Cal's duo of Shu and Monica Wiesener. The Cardinal pair will go against Bernadette Bayani and Melissa Esmero of USC for the invitational doubles crown.
