Long Beach State's dynasty at Indian Wells Tennis Garden continued Sunday as the 49er women defeated UC Irvine, 4-1, to earn its eighth Big West Women's Tennis Championship crown in nine years.

The 49ers captured the Big West's automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Championships on a day when they collected their ninth tournament title overall.

It also improved the 49ers to 6-1 all-time against the Anteaters in championship matches.

LBSU notched the all-important doubles point to take the 1-0 lead.  Rachel Manasse and Laura Bernard claimed the point with their win at No. 3 over Courtney Byron and Hannah Holladay.

The 49ers staked themselves to a 3-0 lead as Manasse topped Byron 6-2, 6-3 at No. 2 and Sarah Cantlay defeated Kat Facey 6-1, 7-5 at No. 4.

UCI dented the scoreboard with Marivick Mamiit's 6-2, 6-3 triumph over Klaudia Malenovska at No. 5.  However, the 49ers closed out any hopes for a comeback as freshman Laura Bernard won the clinching match at No. 5, defeating Franziska Goettsching 6-3, 6-4.

The 49ers bettered their record to 18-5 on the season and await their first round opponent in the NCAA Championship.  The Anteaters concluded their season at 16-8.

LBSU learns its first round opponent and destination for the NCAA Championships on Tuesday, May 1 at 2:00 p.m. (PDT) on NCAA.com.
