BERKELEY, Calif. - The Cal women's tennis team came into Sunday's match-up against Stanford feeling good, after blanking Oregon, 7-0, the day before. But in the end, the Bears could not muster enough to beat the No. 1 ranked Cardinal, falling 6-1. The Bears' record moves to 8-3 on the year.

No. 2 Raquel Kops-Jones was the lone singles winner for the Bears, beating Amber Liu, 6-3, 6-2. Jieun Jacobs also played well despite falling to Alice Barnes, 7-5, 4-6, (10-6), in a very entertaining match.

Catherine Lynch's 10-match winning streak was snapped by Erin Burdette, on court No. 3. Lynch's overall record is now 16-7. The Lynch loss coupled with the Kops-Jones win moves the two into a tied for the team lead in victories with 16 apiece.
