Logar Named Pac-10's Best; No. 2 Cardinal Hosts Sacramento State
Feb. 6, 2007
STANFORD, Calif.- The incredible 89-match winning streak might be over. However, Stanford's individual dominance in the Pac-10 continues.
Despite suffering its first team loss since 2003 last weekend during a 4-3 loss to then-No. 6 Georgia Tech, the Stanford women's tennis program received some good news early in the week.
Senior Theresa Logar, ranked No. 89 in the nation, was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week for Jan. 29-Feb. 4 in the conference's first league vote of the year.
During Stanford's semifinal run at the National Team Indoor Championships in Madison, Wisc., Logar went 3-0 in singles at the No. 1 spot and dispatched of three nationally-ranked players (two in the top-15) all in straight sets. Logar opened the tourney with a 6-3, 6-1 triumph over Vanderbilt's No. 57 Taka Bertrand and followed that with a 6-4, 6-2 win over No. 3 Susie Babos of California and a 6-0, 6-2 rout of No. 15 Kristi Miller of Georgia Tech.
Logar has now won her last five singles matches and improves to 10-4 on the year. She is 5-2 against nationally-ranked opponents and is 8-3 on neutral courts.
As a result of the Yellow Jackets' 4-3 upset of the Cardinal on Saturday, Georgia Tech has moved up to No. 1 in the latest ITA team rankings while Stanford now sits at No. 2. The top-10 is rounded out by: No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 4 Florida, No. 5 USC, No. 6 Northwestern, No. 7 North Carolina, No. 8 Miami, No. 9 California and No. 10 Baylor.
Looking ahead, Stanford will play just one match this week. The Cardinal hosts No. 47 Sacramento State (2-1) on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 1:30 p.m. The Hornets are coming off a 4-3 road win at Oregon.
That's the first of a three-match homestand that concludes next week with USC and UCLA.
