April 10, 2009

STANFORD, Calif.- No. 10 Stanford blanked No. 56 Oregon 7-0 on Friday afternoon at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium, posting its sixth shutout of the year.

The Cardinal, which has won 11 of its last 12 matches, is now 16-3 overall and 6-1 in Pac-10 play. The Ducks dropped to 9-11 overall and 1-5 in league competition.

With Friday's victory, Stanford extended its home winning streak at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium to an unthinkable 148 in a row (120 in the regular season). The Cardinal's last loss in a home dual match occurred more than 10 years ago, in the form of a 5-4 setback to No. 4 California on Feb. 27, 1999.

Stanford experienced little trouble in the contest, despite playing without its No. 1 player, Hilary Barte, who missed the match with an injury. She is expected to return to the lineup tomorrow.

Stanford claimed the doubles point with victories at the Nos. 1 and 2 positions. The tandem of Carolyn McVeigh and Jessica Nguyen was moved up to the top spot and cruised to an 8-2 win to set the tone.

In singles, Carolyn McVeigh put Stanford in front 2-0 with a quick 6-1, 6-1 triumph at the No. 4 spot. Playing for just the third time since Feb. 13, Jennifer Yen contributed a 6-2, 6-4 victory on court six before Veronica Li secured the match with a 6-1, 6-3 effort on court three.

Stanford hosts No. 45 Pepperdine tomorrow at 12 p.m. in its regular season home finale. The match also represents Senior Day for Jessica Nguyen and Isamarie Perez.
