UCSB Women’s Tennis Finish Off Cal State Fullerton

The UC Santa Barbara Women's Tennis team defeated Big West Conference opponent Cal State Fullerton on Saturday by a score of 4-1. 

"We defeated a good conference opponent," said the head coach Simon Thibodeau. "We bounced back well in singles after being a little off on the fundamentals in doubles. We handled the windy conditions very well."

The Gauchos opened up the doubles match with a win as the doubles tandem of Natalie Da Silveira and Stephanie Yamada defeated Pham and Makiba by a score of 6-2 at No.3.  However, Cal State Fullerton fought back as No.2 Nuno and Portalatin defeated Amanda Atanasson and Stefani Stojic 6-4 and Palina Dubavets and Melissa Baker fell to Valenzuela and De Lon 6-4 at No.1.

In singles, UCSB women's tennis team fought back as No.3 Jaimee Gilbertson defeated Portalatin 6-3, 6-4 and No.4 Stojic defeated Nuno 6-3, 6-3. Next, Atanasson won against Makiba 6-3, 6-4 at No.5. At No.6, Baker had a neck and neck match against Pham and won by a score of 6-1, 5-7, 6-0. Dubavets and Da Silveira did not have chances to finish their matches.

The Gauchos will remain on their home court and play against UC Irvine on Sunday, April 9 at 11 a.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
