THIS WEEK IN HUSKY WOMEN'S TENNIS
Friday, Feb. 4, Nordstrom Tennis Center
No. 16 Washington vs. Portland, 12:30 p.m. | Live Video and Scores
SEATTLE -- Looking to carry the momentum from last week's historic win at UCLA through to next week's ITA National Team Indoor Championships, the 16th-ranked Husky women's tennis team hosts Portland on Friday. First serve for the match will be at 12:30 p.m. inside the Nordstrom Tennis Center for the match that was moved up from March.
The Huskies jumped into the top-25 for the first time this season on Wednesday, moving to 16th after their upset win over then-No. 4 UCLA last Saturday that earned them a trip to Wisconsin for the ITA National Team Indoors. Nika Zupancic also was named Pac-12 Player of the Week on Wednesday, her first honor.
UW now owns a 5-0 record. The Huskies have won the doubles point in all five matches so far, with Zoey Weil and Kelly Leung going 5-0 at No. 3, and Zupancic and Sarah-Maude Fortin going 4-0 at No. 2. In singles play, Fortin and Hikaru Sato are both 5-0 thus far, with Zupancic at 4-1 and winner of four straight.
The Pilots won their season-opener, 4-3, over Portland State in their only match thus far.
