Tulsa, OK - UCLA captured its first-ever NCAA women's tennis championship with a 4-0 victory over California on Tuesday afternoon at Tulsa's Michael D. Case Tennis Center.
After capturing the doubles point, the Bruins went ahead 2-0 after a victory by Alex McGoodwin on court six, 6-4, 6-1. Within a minute of each other, Andrea Remynse (7-6, 6-2) and Riza Zalameda (3-6, 6-3, 6-2) posted victories to claim the championship for the Bruins.
This is UCLA's second national title in women's tennis (the Bruins wom the AIAW title in 1981), and the second NCAA title for a UCLA team in less than two weeks. Women's water polo won the NCAA title just nine days ago. UCLA now has a nation-leading 102 NCAA championships.
More details to come.
