To the Bitter End

| No Comments

The doubles' point always seems to make the difference in big collegiate tennis matches.  After falling behind 1-0, USC women's tennis fought itself into a winning position thanks to gutsy singles play, but the Women of Troy could not overcome UCLA in a 4-3 national semifinal loss.

Click here for the recap.

Despite the loss, the future remains extremely bright for Richard Gallien's team.  The top six players will return next season led by the ever-improving freshmen class.

While No. 1 Zoe Scandalis ran out of gas in the third set, fellow freshmen Sabrina Santamaria and Gabriella DeSimone banked dramatic singles victories.  Tied at 3-3, the dual match came down to junior Danielle Lao, who has been the queen of clutch all season, but fell in three tough sets.

Nevertheless, the Trojans have more than enough talent on this roster to make deep NCAA runs a habit.
