Eighteenth-ranked California ran its all-time record against Washington to 28-3 with a dominating, 7-0, victory over the No. 31 Huskies on March 9 at the Hellman Tennis Complex. The Golden Bears (7-4, 2-0 in the Pac-12) lost just one set en route to sweeping UW (8-5, 0-2 Pac-12).
The pair of junior Kelly Chui and sophomore Laura Posylkin claimed Cal's first win of the day, beating Julija Lukac/Andjela Nemcevic on court three in doubles, 8-5, and the 30th-ranked team of junior Anett Schutting and freshman Lynn Chi secured the doubles point with an 8-6 win on court one over Ellanne Douglas-Miron/Riko Shimizu. Cal senior Tayler Davis and freshman Klara Fabikova added an 8-7(4) win over Natali Coronel/Grace Ysidora on court two.
The Bears got a strong performance from the eighth-ranked Schutting against No. 124 Nemcevic, 6-1, 6-1, on court one to start the singles matches. Next, the 117th-ranked Fabikova topped Douglas-Miron, 6-3, 6-3, on court three to make the team score 3-0, and then Davis clinched the match with a 6-3, 6-3, triumph over Lukac on court four.
UW finally broke through on court two, as the 49th-ranked Chi dropped a 6-3 first set to Ysidora. But the Bear rebounded to win the last two sets, 6-3, 6-3, and complete Cal's sweep. Marquette at home.
