THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Playing on the Poulson Tennis Center Courts for the final time in the four-year careers of seniors Shelby Kubota and Emily Werman, the Cal Lutheran women’s tennis team worked to an 8-1 Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) victory over Occidental this morning.

Following a brief ceremony to honor the graduating duo, the Regals got started strong and maintained confidence and an advantage on most courts throughout the match.


In doubles action, Nicole Neumann and Sarah Seeman cruised to an 8-2 victory for the first point of the day at No. 3 before Kubota and Annette Sousa earned an 8-5 win at No. 2 and Werman and Christie Kurdys teamed up for an 8-6 win at No. 1 to sweep through doubles.

With an advantage, the Regals continued to add team points to the tally with five singles wins.

Seeman won with ease at No. 4, downing her opponent 6-0, 6-3. Sousa also won by a significant margin at 6-1, 6-2 on the third court and Neumann notched a 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 6 for the Violet and Gold. Kubota came away with a 6-2, 6-2 victory at No. 5 and Kurdys rounded out the singles action by defeating her competitor at the top court by a 6-3, 6-2 margin.

Both Kubota and Werman are four-year letter-winners who have contributed significantly to the women’s tennis program throughout her career.

Cal Lutheran (4-9, 2-3 SCIAC) rounds out league action with two road matches, the first, a week from today, on Saturday, April 15, at Pomona-Pitzer with first serve set for 10:00 a.m. against the Sagehens.
