NorCal Bound
The UC Santa Barbara Women's Tennis team will travel north this weekend for a pair of dual matches. They will play their first Big West match at Davis on Friday before heading to the Bay Area to take on No. 12 Cal Bears on Saturday.

Running It Back
Last season, the women's team made a historic run, tying a program record of winning 12 straight matches and making an appearance in the second round of the NCAA Tournament after a miracle comeback to defeat Kansas 4-3. This season, the squad will look to three-peat as Big West Champions. One key piece to the Gaucho's success was Shakhnoza Khatamova who ended the season ranked No. 76 in the ITA rankings and qualified for the NCAA Championships in singles.

Fall Recap
Sophomore Amelia Honer was on fire at the ITA Southwest Regional Championship, defeating the then No. 1 player in the country, Eryn Cayetano of USC. Honer is currently ranked No. 27 in doubles with partner Filippa Bruu-Syversen and No. 49 in singles.
