    LAS VEGAS, NEV. -- Several members of the USC women's tennis team started their spring seasons with a strong showing at the Freeman Memorial Tennis Championships. The big winners on the weekend were Trojan doubles duo Giuliana Olmos and Zoë Scandalis, who streaked to the title match, where the Women of Troy took down a UCLA pair in today's championship bout.

    Olmos and Scandalis were the No. 3 seeded pair in the tourney. Ranked #7 in the nation, the Trojans lived up to their billing, registering solid wins in their first two matches before pulling off a 7-5 win in the semis to move into the title match. There, Olmos/Scandalis squared off against UCLA's Harrison/McPhillips, and the Trojans took care of business with a 6-4 victory that planted the championship trophy in the hands of Olmos and Scandalis.

    On the singles side of the game, Scandalis and USC freshman got through to the Round of 16 in the main draw, while Olmos worked her way to the consolation final.
