The UCSD women’s tennis team took down Sonoma State and won 7–2 this past Easter Sunday.

No. 22 UCSD (10–8) took an early lead as it swept Sonoma in all three doubles matches. Senior Kyra Scott and sophomore Britta Mosser, UCSD’s top doubles team, proved why they are ranked No. 25 in the country, as they defeated Sonoma’s top doubles team 8–6. Mosser went on to win her singles match after a three-set battle with Sonoma State’s junior Jordyn Kearney, winning her first set 6–0, losing her second 5–7 and then triumphing in the last set with 11–9. Meanwhile, UCSD’s standout Scott, playing in the top singles spot, saw her eight-match winning streak come to an end as she dropped her singles match to Sonoma State’s freshman Jensyn Warren 6–2 and 6–3. Freshman Ashley Chao and junior Shannon Theisen, however, won 8–5 in their doubles match as their teammates, freshmen Madison Hale and Alexandra Weil, went on to crush their opponents in doubles 8–1.

Sophomore Jasmine Hosseini, Weil and Hale continued their streaks and eventually went on to win their singles matches against their Sonoma State counterparts. After UCSD’s victory at Sonoma, the Tritons remain ranked No. 22 in the nation and No. 4 in the West region. UCSD will host University of Nevada at Reno on Thursday, March 31 at 2 p.m.
