Pacific Continues Play At The ITA Northwest Regional Championships

Palo Alto, Calif. - The Pacific women's tennis team picked up three consolation round victories in day two of the 2011 USTA/ITA Northwest Regional Championships at Stanford University.

Senior Summer Irvin picked up a three set victory over Sandra Florea of San Jose State, winning 10-7 in the tiebreaker.

"Julia was down against the #16 seed 6-2, 4-1 before winning the second set 6-4," said head coach Bob Chiene. "Julia was so close to taking a 5-3 lead in the third but could not finish it. She did play some of her best tennis though. Iveta is still sick otherwise she could have gone another round or two in the main draw. Playing all these matches is giving us valuable experience, especially for our freshmen."

The Tigers will continue play on Sunday with two doubles matches beginning at 10:00 a.m.
