Rains Shift ITA Kickoff Weekend Schedule at USC’s Marks Stadium
LOS ANGELES — Inclement weather doused the courts at Marks Stadium today, interrupting the match schedule for the first day of ITA Kickoff Weekend at USC. After a delayed start, UCLA beat Cal 4-0 before the skies opened up again over Los Angeles. That made it impossible to get the second match of the day in between USC and UNLV. Instead, the top-ranked Trojans and the Rebels will square off tomorrow (Jan. 24) at 11 a.m. That change also results in a shift of the consolation and championship matches, which will now be held on Monday (Jan. 25). The consolation match will take place at 10 a.m., with the championship match starting not before 2 p.m.
Below are the results of No. 18 UCLA's match with California. Due to the unpredictable weather, singles was played first. The Bruins were able to get the 4-0 win to avert the need for doubles play. UCLA will move on to Monday's championship match, and Cal will play in the consolation match that morning.
Sunday's USC-UNLV match also will feature singles play first, with doubles after if necessary. On Monday, the expectation is to have both matches resume typical dual-match structure of doubles first followed by singles.
