Oregon women’s tennis: UCSB falls to Oregon 5-2

The Ducks flew south to Santa Barbara, California to face off against UCSB in their first game of their two-match road trip. The Ducks made work of the Gauchos, winning 5-2.

Oregon clinched the doubles point after wins from Nicole Long/Marlou Kluiving and Nia Rose/Alyssa Tobita. They won their matches 8-2 and 8-4 respectively.

In singles, Oregon won all of their matches with exception of the No. 5 and No. 6 played by Lina Akesson and Allie Hueffner. The game-clinching point went to Long in her match against April Scatliffe (6-4, 6-4). Another notable win went to Kluiving who, with her 6-4, 6-4 win against Melissa Baker, remains undefeated in dual play and 14-2 in singles overall.

The Ducks will play against tomorrow against Santa Clara at the UCSB Women’s Tennis Courts.
