Gauchos Host Doubleheader Saturday

Feb. 4, 2011

Santa Barbara Calif - UC Santa Barbara women's tennis continues its season opening six-game home stand Saturday, with a doubleheader against Cal State Stanislaus and Cal State Bakersfield at the Roberson Gymnasium courts.

The Gauchos will take on CSU Stanislaus first at 9 a.m. before concluding the day's actions against CSU Bakersfield at 2 p.m.

CSU Stanislaus boasts a talented roster and is ranked #4 nationally in Division II heading into this weekends match. CSU Bakersfield played a hotly contested match against Northern Arizona in Santa Barbara last weekend pushing the Lumberjacks to three sets in three of six singles matches.

We're looking to build on our momentum from the Northern Arizona win and establish dominance on our home courts," said head coach Peter Kirkwood.

The Gauchos will receive a boost from Freshman Paola Cos who has been deemed eligible to play by NCAA clearinghouse and will start both matches.
