PASADENA (Apr. 6, 2018) – The Caltech women's tennis team had no trouble winning all nine matches and disposing of visiting SCIAC foe Whittier College on Friday afternoon.
The Beavers were especially proficient in showcasing their depth, as they surrendered just three games between their bottom four singles slots. Senior Erin Wang (Auburn, Calif. / Del Oro) came through with a 6-0, 6-0 victory at fifth singles while freshman Ankita Roychoudhury (Madison, Conn. / Daniel Hand), freshman Sarina Liu (Rolling Hills, Calif. / Palos Verdes Peninsula) and sophomore Angelica Zhou (Temple City, Calif. / Arcadia) each managed to drop just one game in their respective matches. The strongest doubles outing of the day came when Zhou and junior Julia Reisler (Plano, Texas / Greenhill) defeated their opponents, 8-2, at second doubles, though all Beavers won with little trouble. Regionally-ranked No. 11 doubles team consisting of Liu and junior Kana Moriyama (Redmond, Wash. / Redmond) won handily at first doubles, 8-3.
Head Coach Mandy Gamble and the Beavers will have a quick turnaround when they return home to host No. 7 Pomona-Pitzer Colleges at 10 a.m.
