Gauchos Travel to Northern California for Weekend Matches

Feb. 12, 2010

Santa Barbara, Calif. - The UC Santa Barbara women's tennis team will get back into the swing of things as it embarks on a Northern California road trip this weekend. The trip will include matches against St. Mary's on Friday, and San Francisco and Santa Clara on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

The entire team played well in the sweep of Cal State Bakersfield, so there should be some momentum for the Gauchos as they look for their first road victory.

After a strong showing last weekend at home that lead to the team's first win, the Gauchos (1-3) will look to continue their recent success as they start the trip against St. Mary's (3-1). The Gaels are coming off a win over Denver, who the Gauchos will face next weekend.

On Saturday, the team will head to San Francisco to take on the Dons (1-3). San Francisco's most recent match resulted in a loss to Cal Poly.

The Gaucho's will finish the weekend against Santa Clara (2-1), who upset Loyola Marymount last Sunday.

After this three-game stretch, the Gauchos will then travel to Denver and Wyoming next weekend, before returning home to take on UC Davis in the first Big West battle on February 27th.
