BERKELEY, Calif. - The University of California women's tennis team closed out its 2002 home slate with a win today, defeating Pac-10 rival Arizona 5-2 to claim its second conference win of the season. With the win, the Bears improve to 12-7 (2-3 Pac-10), while Arizona drops to 8-12 (2-4 Pac-10)

Cal was swept in doubles for the second consecutive match, with Christina Fusano and Jieun Jacobs rallying from a 4-0 deficit to lose in a tiebreaker 9-8 (8-6). The Bears got things back on track during singles, however, winning in straight sets on five of six courts.

Sophomore Catherine Lynch got her first-ever win at the top spot, claiming a hard-fought 7-5, 6-2 victory over the higher-ranked Maja Mlakar. Fusano claimed yet another win, defeating Diane Hollands, 6-4, 6-1. Jacobs and Jody Schelt both dominated on their respective courts, with Jacobs winning in a pair of 6-1 sets, while Scheldt finished off Lorena Marino 6-3, 6-4. Freshman Carla Arguelles was in the midst of a comeback against Marie-Pier Pouliot, when the Wildcat was forced to withdrawl due to injury.

The Bears finish off their regular season next week in Los Angeles, challenging UCLA on Friday and USC on Saturday.
