Bruins reach NCAA semis in women's tennis
The top-seeded UCLA women's tennis team defeated California, 4-1, in an NCAA quarterfinal Saturday at the University of Georgia, setting up a rematch with No. 5 USC Monday in the semifinals.
Cal and USC were the only teams to defeat UCLA (25-2) this season, though UCLA has won two of the three meetings with USC this season.
The Bruins secured the doubles point when the teams of McCall Jones-Carling Seguso and Courtney Dolehide-Pamela Montez posted 8-4 victories. Skylar Morton, Montez and Seguso then posted straight-sets victories in singles to clinch the match.

It is the second consecutive season the Bruins have reached the NCAA semifinals. Last year, they lost to eventual national champion Florida.
