In addition, two Bears advanced to the Gold Flight singles semifinals - fifth-ranked and top-seeded Zsofi Susanyi topped teammate Kelly Chui, 6-2, 6-1, in one quarterfinal, while Schutting - the second seed - defeated Jade Frampton of Saint Mary's, 6-1, 6-2. Susanyi will play Santa Clara's fourth-seeded and 41st-ranked Katie Le in one semi and Schutting, the second seed, will play Saint Mary's Jenny Jullien, the sixth seed, in the other semi at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday at Hellman.

In Gold Flight consolation singles quarterfinals, Santa Clara's Alex Zaniewski advanced past freshman Klara Fabikova due to injury. Estlander moved past BYU's McKenna Maddox into the Blue Flight singles final due to a no show. In the other Blue Flight singles bracket, Chui fell to Minnesota's, 6-2, 6-2, in the quarters. Cal missed out on another final, when Posylkin dropped a three setter to San Francisco's Brooke Irish, 0-6, 6-4, 6-1, in the White Flight semis.

Schutting and Goransson moved past Arizona State's Desirae Krawczyk and Stephanie Vlad, 8-5, in the Gold Flight semis and will play the Saint Mary's pair of Audrey Leitz and Jullien at 9 a.m. on Sunday at Hellman. That is also the time and site of the doubles final in the Blue Flight, which will feature Davis-Posylkin - who beat Minnesota's Doron Muravnik-Tereza Brichacova, 8-4, in the quarters - taking on Estlander-Chui - who earned their way past Sacramento State's Andrea Gomez Carus-Olivia Boija, 8-2.
