    SAN DIEGO, CALIF. -- The No. 9 USC women's tennis team took No. 58 San Diego State by storm today in a mid-week road trip that saw the Women of Troy tack up a smooth 7-0 sweep of the host Aztecs today. On a speedy clincher from freshman Zoë Katz, the Trojans pocketed a road win that improves USC to 6-2 overall.

    The Women of Troy opened the event with a winning run through doubles play to set the tone. Up on court one, USC's defending national champs Kaitlyn Christian and Sabrina Santamaria pinned up an 8-3 win over Antonaña/Buth first. In the cleanup position were Giuliana Olmos and Zoë Scandalis at the No. 3 spot, and they'd come through with a quick clincher on an 8-2 decision over Davis/Nguyen to snag the first point of the match for the Trojans. On court two, USC's Brynn Boren and Zoë Katz sent USC into singles play on a winning note with an 8-5 victory over Johnson/Somoracz.

    In singles, USC strung together three decisive victories to secure a quick win for the Trojan contingent. Senior Kaitlyn Christian silenced her Aztec opponent with 6-0, 6-0 shutout to make it 2-0 from her spot on court six. Then, USC's Zoë Scandalis and Zoë Katz mirrored each other with respective 6-0, 6-1 wins to speed USC to victory, up 4-0 on host San Diego State. Katz secured the clincher, and Brynn Boren was the next to register a win, putting up a 6-3, 6-2 win at the No. 2 singles spot. On court one, USC's Sabrina Santamaria knocked out a 7-5, 7-5 win to make it a 6-0 USC advantage, and Giuliana Olmos would finish out the clean sweep with her 7-6, 6-3 win at the No. 4 spot.



    The Women of Troy now return home to Marks Stadium for a big clash against No. 4 California. USC hosts the Bears in a 12 p.m. match on Saturday (Feb. 22).
