OJAI, Calif. - The third day of the 2004 Pac-10 Individual Championships has come and gone, and Cal's Raquel Kops-Jones continues to shine. On Saturday, the nation's No. 3-ranked player slammed her way to a fourth-consecutive straight-set singles match victory, beating Arizona's No. 14-ranked Dianne Hollands, 6-4, 6-4, to advance to her second-straight Pac-10 singles finals appearance.

The victory sets up a Bay Area battle in the finals on Sunday as Kops-Jones faces off against Stanford's No. 12-ranked Alice Barnes to decide who will take home the 2004 Pac-10 Singles Championship. Last year at this event, Kops-Jones also advanced to the singles finals before losing the championship to Oregon's Daria Panova, 7-6 (6), 6-2. The Golden Bears have never produced a Pac-10 singles champion.

In doubles competition, Cal's No. 13-ranked doubles team of Kops-Jones and Jieun Jacobs advanced to the finals with an overpowering 8-3 victory over Stanford's Emilia Anderson and Anne Yelsey. Kops-Jones and Jacobs take the court vs. Stanford's Barnes and Erin Burdette on Sunday afternoon to decide who will win the 2004 Pac-10 Doubles Championship. Last year, Kops-Jones and former Golden Bear Christina Fusano won the Pac-10 doubles championship as a prelude to winning the NCAA doubles title.

In the invitational draw, Cal's Jessica Shu advanced to the singles finals with a 6-2, 6-1 semifinal victory over Arizona State's Sabrina Capannolo. Shu plays Stanford's Anne Yelsey in the finals on Sunday to determine the winner of the singles invitational championship.
