Tigers head to Davis to take on the Aggies

After a week's hiatus, Pacific women's tennis heads to UC Davis for one of its two matches in the month of February.

Pacific has had one dual match so far to start the season, it came on Jan. 27 in a 4-2 loss to Fresno State, a team that qualified for the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Through Pacific's season so far, the Tigers have started 12-19 in singles matches and 5-6 in doubles play. Four of the Tigers have won at least half of their matches. Freshman Jacquie Tan and Georgia Townsend started the season 2-1 in singles while freshman Maya Lopez and senior Anneroos Nederstigt are 2-2. Nederstigt had the Tigers sole singles win last week at Fresno State.

Rain is in the forecast for Saturday's match, so keep up with the Tigers at Pacifictigers.com or on social media, @UOPWTennis, for all of the updates regarding reschedules and cancellations.

Scouting the Aggies

UC Davis started the season 0-3 with losses to Arizona State, Northern Arizona and Pacific's West Coast Conference foe, San Francisco. Last weekend, the Aggies had a Bay Area road trip to No. 1 Stanford and Pacific's West Coast Conference foe, Santa Clara, washed out due to rain.

In 2017-18, Davis posted a 15-7 record but fell in the Big West Conference Championship's opening round to Cal Poly 4-3.

The Aggies return three All-Big West selections from the 2017-18 season. Junior Kristina Breisacher made the singles second-team after going 14-14 on the season. Kelsie Bryant made the doubles second-team but is yet to pick up a win in doubles this spring. Junior Nikita Pradeep was an honorable mention selection in singles and went 17-6 overall on the season.
