UP NEXT: The University of San Diego women's tennis team (9-10, 4-4 WCC) travel to Oregon for their last match of the regular season. The Toreros will face the Portland Pilots (5-9, 1-6 WCC) this Saturday at the Louisiana-Pacific Tennis Center.


San Diego (9-10, 4-4 WCC) vs. Portland (5-9, 1-6 WCC)

Saturday, April 19th - 10:00 a.m. PT at Portland, Ore., Louisiana-Pacific Tennis Center 


LAST TIME OUT: Decisions coming down to the wire are no surprise to the Toreros. After taking the doubles point at the No. 1 and 2 spots, the Toreros grabbed the next three points early in the match to take the City Championship victory 4-3 against the San Diego State Aztecs.

Sophomores Shani Blecher and Marta Stojanovic started the afternoon off on a high note cruising past Aztecs' Dora Somoracz and Hailey Johnson 8-2. Doubles duo Anna Depenau and Colomba DiFilippo continued their hot streak defeating Kristin Buth and Laura Antonana by an identical score. The pair has won eight matches straight.

While No. 44 Laura Antonana got the victory over Blecher, DiFilippo got the Toreros back on track defeating Kennedy Davis 6-1, 6-2. Depenau followed, winning her tenth match in a row 6-3, 6-2. Fellow senior Idil Haciraifoglu clinched the win after taking down Isabelle Hoorn 6-1, 6-2.

SCOUTING THE PILOTS: The Pilots are coming off of a loss, dropping a 6-1 decision to the Santa Clara Broncos. The squad has struggled in conference play, their lone win coming from the Gonzaga Bulldogs. The Pilots feature a roster that includes Maja Mladenovic who plays exclusively at the No. 1 spot and marks an 8-5 record for the regular season. Last season, Portland ended their run falling to the fifth-seeded San Francisco Dons in the first round. The Toreros have never lost to the Pilots.



WCC HONORS: The Toreros received its first honors this season with West Coast Conference Doubles Players of the Week recognition as senior Anna Depenau and freshman Colomba DiFilippo took home the honors for April 16, 2014 announced by the WCC on Wednesday morning.

As a pair, Depenau and DiFilippo are first on the team with a 10-4 doubles record on the year in regular season, playing exclusively at No. 2 and hold a nine-match winning streak. This is the first player of the week nod for either player this season. The duo is coming off a win against cross-town foe San Diego State yesterday afternoon 8-2, helping the Toreros clinch the doubles point.
