SAN DIEGO, Calif.-- The 2013 WCC Women's Tennis Championship continued Friday with fast paced competition as No. 2 Pepperdine outlasted No. 4 Santa Clara. The Waves took the early advantage by earning the doubles point after victories on the Nos. 1 and 3 courts. The ensuing singles matches brought plenty of drama, as the Broncos stormed back with wins by Stephanie Skaras (No. 6), and Katie Le (No. 1). The Waves countered with straight set victories by Ale Granillo and Khunpak Issara, and a grueling 6-4, 7-6 (3) win by Michaela Capannolo to clinch a berth into tomorrow's final.

Top-seeded Saint Mary's played its first match in the 2013 WCC Championship, ousting No. 4 San Diego by a final match score of 4-1. The Gaels earned the doubles point with wins by Jenny Jullien/Danielle Flores (No. 1) and Jade Frampton/Liz Searl (No. 3), and cruised through the singles session by registering three, straight set victories. Jullien and Frampton put the Gaels up 3-1 after Anna Depenau earned the lone point for the Toreros, while Catherine Isip's (No. 2) win proved to be the deciding match point.
