SEATTLE, Wash. - Cal women's tennis player Jieun Jacobs defeated top-seeded Luana Magnani (USC) 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 to claim the singles flight no. 2 final Sunday at the Pac-10 Indoor Championship.
Also shining for the Golden Bears during the weekend tournament was newcomer Jody Scheldt, a recent transfer from the University of Iowa, advanced to the final match of the singles flight no. 4 before being defeated by Washington State's Orsolya Sallai, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7(5). Nicole Havlicek rebounded from a 6-1, 5-7, 2-6 defeat in the first round to claim the championship in the consolation singles flight no. 3, by defeating Oregon's Courtney Nagle in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2.
Three doubles teams competed for Cal, with the team of freshman Carla Arguelles and Christina Fusano standing out the most by advancing to the semifinals of doubles flight no. 2. The duo defeated Washington State's pair of Fodor and Roganovic to move into a match with the top-seeded team of Gregg and Hawley from UCLA. Despite a hard-fought match, Arguelles and Fusano's run was ended, 7-9.
Next up for the Bears will be Santa Clara, on Monday, January 31, at 1:30 p.m. The match, which is the regular season opener for Cal, will take place at the Hellman Tennis Complex on the University of California campus in Berkeley.
