        Sophomore Anna Guzman put up two consecutive 6-0 set victories to sweep Joyce Librando in the number five singles position.  Following the match Guzman said, “I’m very satisfied with how I was able to stay focused during the match today.  Most of my shots worked out well, and I felt good out on the court.”

“Unlike in junior college, I felt like I was playing to win for the team and not for myself.  I was really happy with my serve today, and that I was able to play well through the entire match to help us win.”

Amber Silverstone and Olivia Marshall each won, 6-0, 6-1 in the top two singles positions for the Spartans.

After winning the first set 6-2, senior Silvana Dukic shut out Adriana Espinosa for a 6-2, 6-0 victory.

Head coach Anh-Dao Nguyen-Church said, “I think our team mentally and physically was able to regroup after four days off.  Our girls set a positive tone for this weekend with the way they played in today’s win.”
