Toreros Take Advantage of Ailing Huskies for 5-2 Win

March 21, 2007

SAN DIEGO - Mathilde Cor won at the No. 1 singles spot for the women's tennis team and Joyce Ardies won at No. 2, but the host San Diego Toreros (4-13) beat Washington 5-2 on Wednesday in San Diego.

Cor's victory was the first win for the Huskies at the No. 1 singles spot this season. Cor, who snapped a personal four-matchless winless streak, beat Monica Wiesener, 6-4, 6-1 to earn the Huskies' first No. 1 singles victory in 13 tries.

Ardies won her team-high eleventh singles match this season (11-9 overall, 6-7 dual matches), taking out Samantha Mouly in three sets. Ardies won a super tie breaker 10-0 to earn the second point for the Huskies, who dropped to 1-12 on the season.

Washington was forced to play just five singles matches after Allison Rainey was unable to compete on the singles side. The Toreros won in the No. 3-5 matches to put away the Dawgs.

San Diego jumped out to the 1-0 advantage, winning two of the three doubles matches. Melinda Wong and Tara Simpson won 8-6 in the No. 2 doubles match to improve to 10-6 as a pair, but the Huskies couldn't pull out either of the other doubles matches. Cor and Ardies lost in a 7-3 tie-breaker at No. 1, while Rainey and freshman Lauren Summers lost 8-2 in the No. 3 match.

Washington returns home for a four-match home stand beginning with Boise State on Thursday at 12 pm.
