No. 20 USC Women’s Tennis Serves Up 4-1 Victory Over Arizona State

Mar 11, 2022

The No. 20 USC women's tennis team whipped up a solid win at Marks Stadium today (March 11), taking out visiting Pac-12 rival Arizona State, 4-1. The Trojans followed a doubles point win with three singles victories, only allowing the Sun Devils to snag one point. The win improves USC to 8-7 overall, 2-1 in Pac-12 play. 

There was no stopping USC's No. 49 ranked doubles duo of Eryn Cayetano and Grace Piper, as they scooped up a 6-2 win on center court, defeating ASU's No. 56 Spaka/Turkovic. The Sun Devils duo of Hill/Jankowski downed USC's Sloane Morra/Salma Ewing 6-4 on court three to leave the doubles point decision in the hands of Naomi Cheong and Snow Han on court two. Cheong/Han battled to defeat ASU's Gallagher/Morlet 7-6(4) and win the doubles point for USC.

The transition to singles saw McKenna Koenig hit the gas early, taking a 5-0 lead on her respective Arizona foe. Koenig cruised right along, picking up a 6-1, 6-2 win over Natasha Hill on court six to tally USC's first singles win of the day. Next up was a quick finish from No. 6 Eryn Cayetano on court two, as she beat Domenika Turkovic 6-4, 6-2. ASU's Cali Jankowski collected the Sun Devils only point of the day with a 6-4,6-4 decision on court four against Grace Piper. No. 60 Snow Han came through with her second consecutive clincher, taking the Trojans ahead 4-1 with her 6-2, 6-4 decision over Sedona Gallagher on court three. 

With the match clinched, action on courts one and five was suspended with No. 29 Salma Ewing up 6-4, 3-4 (C1) over Morlet ASU. On five, Naomi Cheong led ASU's Patricija Spaka 6-4, 5-4. 

Tomorrow, the Women of Troy host a pair of matches at Marks Stadium, beginning at 12 p.m. against Arizona. They'll follow it up with a match against Hawaii Pacific 4 p.m. PT.
