SAN DIEGO - The West Coast Conference Tennis Tournament brackets for this coming weekend's WCC Championships, April 23rd-25th, were announced today, as the University of San Diego men's and women's tennis teams both received No. 3 seeds and will each compete in first round action on Friday, April 23rd at 3 p.m. PT at the tournament host site, Barnes Tennis Center in Point Loma.


The 58th-ranked men's team (10-8) will square off against No. 6 seed Portland (9-8) in Friday's opening round. Leading the way for the Toreros, Dean Jackson and Nikola Bubnic, the No. 1 and No. 2 singles players, have combined for an impressive dual mark of 27-5. Bubnic is currently ranked No. 94 in the Campbell/ITA College Tennis Singles Rankings, having slotted as high as No. 82 this season.

Last time out, San Diego's second go-around at match play with UCLA was foiled due to inclement weather in the Los Angeles area. The Toreros and Bruins were originally scheduled to square off back in early February, but the match was washed away for the first time.

The Toreros as a team have been ranked as high as No. 45, after defeating 51st-ranked UC Irvine, 4-3, on March 3rd. USD has enjoyed a four match win streak this season and captured key victories over UC Irvine, Cal Poly, UC Santa Barbara, and UNLV.

Scouting the Pilots: Portland (9-8) will look to improve on last year's fourth place finish at the WCC Championships. Similar to the Toreros, who endured four rain-outs over the course of the season, the Pilots, in the final week of regular season action, had to cancel two of their three regularly scheduled matches because of rain. The Pilots were able to play their regular season closer and swept Idaho State 7-0, bringing their record to 9-8 overall. The 73rd-ranked doubles duo of seniors Filip Zivkovic and Evan Schleining posted an 8-4 victory at the No. 1 spot to lead the Pilots to claim the doubles point.


The 62nd-ranked women's team (11-11) is slated to face No. 6 seed Gonzaga Friday afternoon in the opening round. San Diego's roster boasts a young and talented lineup, as sophomore Juliette Coupez and freshman Laura Claus have occupied the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively, all year long for the Toreros. Sophomore Marite Raygada, the winningest Torero in 2010 spring competition, stands atop the leader board with 17 singles victories for the Toreros. Raygada was nominated as the WCC Player of the Month for March, after going a perfect 8-0. She continues to ride a 12 match win streak at the No. 6 position.

The lady netters have been ranked as high as No. 45 in dual match competition, following an upset of 28th-ranked LSU at the ITA Kick-Off held in Los Angeles on the campus of University of Southern California. The Toreros have managed to capture three wins against ranked opponents this season - #28 LSU, #41 Marshall, and #70 Washington St.

Last time out, USD battled tough against cross-town rival, 75th-ranked San Diego State, but fell 5-2 to the Aztecs on the campus of SDSU at the Aztec Tennis Center. Both senior Alexandra Demidova and sophomore Marite Raygada captured singles victories for San Diego at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.

Scouting the Bulldogs: The Gonzaga Bulldogs (13-5) closed out their regular season with a 6-1 victory over Eastern Washington University this past Monday evening. The 'Zags posted wins in five of the six singles matches after claiming the doubles point. The 13 wins are most ever in school history as freshman Prue Teitzel, junior Rika Mehdndiratta and sophomore Kristina Zauere each finished the regular season with double-digit wins. The Bulldogs have enjoyed four and five match win streaks this season.


With a win on Friday, both the men and women would play Saturday at 3 p.m. PT in second round action. The men would face the winner of Friday's match between No. 2 seed Santa Clara and No. 7 seed St. Mary's. The women stand to battle either No. 2 seed Pepperdine or No. 7 seed Portland.
