STANFORD, Calif. - The top-ranked Stanford women's tennis team defeated Bay Area and Pac-10 rival California 7-1 today at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium. With the win, the Cardinal (20-1 overall, 8-1 Pac-10) reached the 20-win plateau for the 16th consecutive year and captured the season series with the Golden Bears for the fifth straight year. Stanford defeated Cal 5-4 earlier this season. With the loss, California fell to 14-5 overall and 7-2 in Pac-10 play.

Stanford cruised through the singles ladder, winning five of the six matches in straight sets. At the No. 1 position, Stanford's Anne Kremer, currently ranked 16th in the nation, knocked off No. 6 Amanda Augustus 6-2, 6-1 to improve to 13-5 on the season. Augustus had defeated Kremer 7-5, 6-3 in the first meeting between the two teams.

Senior captain Julie Scott improved to 32-4 on the season with a convincing 6-0, 6-0 win over Amy Jensen at the No. 2 slot. The victory was Scott's 89th career dual match win, moving her into third place all-time at Stanford. Freshman Sarah Pestieau defeated Stephanie Tibbits 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 at the No. 5 position to become the fifth Stanford player to win 20 or more matches this season, upping her record to 20-6.

The Golden Bears picked up a split of the two doubles matches played for their lone point of the match as Esther Knox and Anita Kurimay defeated Scott and Ania Bleszynski 8-4 at the No. 2 position, their second win over the Cardinal pair this season.
