No. 39 WSU tennis defeated No. 41 University of Southern California 4-1 for its first victory against the Trojans in program history Friday.

WSU (17-1) is now 2-0 in Pac-12 play and has won 10 consecutive matches.

WSU Head Coach Lisa Hart said the Cougars started the match strong and extra time spent mastering doubles in practice this past week payed off.

“Our players did a great job coming out strong and executing from the first point,” Hart said in a WSU news release. “We have been working hard on our doubles and it is rewarding to see the work pay off.”

Freshman Michaela Bayerlova, who is ranked No. 43 nationally, is now 22-1 on the season in singles matches and is 4-0 against ranked opponents after defeating USC senior Gabby Smith.

“It is really special to watch the enormous amount of Cougar Pride our team is playing with. We will enjoy the win today and get ready to battle a very good [University of California, Los Angeles] team tomorrow,” Hart said in the release.

The Cougars continue their Los Angeles road trip against No. 13 UCLA at noon Saturday.
