Wang Takes Three-Set Thriller at Chapman

PASADENA, Calif. (Mar. 31, 2018) – The Caltech women's tennis team picked up three wins at Chapman University on Saturday morning, including a three-set singles win from senior Erin Wang (Auburn, Calif. / Del Oro).

Wang had to win the second and third set to work her way back into the match but successfully came from behind with consecutive 6-3 sets to score for the Beavers. Sophomore Angelica Zhou (Temple City, Calif. / Arcadia) picked up a pair of victories as well, first by teaming with junior Julia Reisler (Plano, Texas / Greenhill) at second doubles to earn an 8-5 win over the Panthers. Zhou later won at fourth singles and overcame a competitive 7-5 first set to dominate the second, 6-1. Doubles partner Reisler, meanwhile needed to win two tiebreakers to win her match at second singles but managed to win the first, 7-5 to force the decisive super tiebreaker.

Head Coach Mandy Gamble and the Beavers return to home court on Friday, Apr. 6 to host Whittier College at 3 p.m.
