Pacific Women's Tennis Takes Down Portland 5-2

Apr 3, 2010
The Pacific womens tennis team is on a two-game win streak after defeating the University of Portland at home Saturday afternoon 5-2. The Tigers improved to 6-10 on the season with the win.

 

Winning the doubles point got us rolling, said Head Coach Bob Chiene. Solid wins at the No. 1, 3 and 6 singles quickly secured the win for us. I was proud.

 

After Pacific swept doubles competition, junior Jenifer Widjaja (Sao Roque, Brazil) captured the win at the No. 1 singles position by defeating Lacey Pflibsen in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1. It marked the seventh straight win for No. 91 Widjaja, who is now boasts a 13-3 record this spring.

 

Senior Sasha Fisher (Southampton, Bermuda) moved up to the No. 5 position against the Pilots and performed well. Fighting back from a set one loss, Fisher pulled out set two and the tie-break to defeat Valeska Hoath 4-6, 6-4, 1-0 (6).

 

The Tigers are back in action on April 7th when they take on Cal State Northridge at 3 p.m. on the Hal Nelson Tennis Courts. Pacific is 2-3 against Big West opponents this spring and will be looking to keep its win streak alive against the Matadors.
