BERKELEY, Calif. - The University of California women's tennis team dropped its third Pac-10 match in four tries today, losing a 4-3 heartbreaker to the higher-ranked Arizona State squad at Hellman Tennis Center in Berkeley. With the loss, the 15th-ranked Bears drop to 11-7 (1-3 Pac-10), while the No. 9 Sun Devils improve to 13-5 (3-2).

After being swept in doubles, Cal gave Arizona State a run for its money in the latter half of the afternoon. No. 73 Catherine Lynch got her first crack at the top singles court this afternoon, challenging the nation's 20th-ranked Adria Engel. Engel ultimately got the best of Lynch, however, losing 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.

Jieun Jacobs scored the first point for the Bears in her return from illness, sweeping Cindy Sureephong off of court four, 6-1, 6-3. Jody Scheldt followed with an impressive 7-6, 6-3 win over Lauren Colallio. After the Sun Devils wrapped up their match-clinching fourth point, team captain Christina Fusano hunkered down to put an end to Mhairi Brown's rally at the third spot, taking a 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 win.

Cal completes its 2002 regular season home slate at noon tomorrow at Hellman, taking on the visiting Arizona Wildcat squad.
