altEighth-seeded Pacific shrugged off the loss of the doubles point with four consecutive singles wins, defeating ninth-seeded Cal Poly 4-1 in the first round of the Big West Women's Tennis Championship at Indian Wells Tennis Garden Thursday.

The Tigers got off to a slow start as Cal Poly claimed the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead in the match.  Kathryn Webb and Haley Kepler defeated Regina Suarez and Christiana Ferrari at No. 3 to wrap up the point for the Mustangs.

Pacific improved to 10-12 on the year while Cal Poly's season ended at 4-18.

The Tigers moved on to Friday's semifinals and a date with top-seeded UC Irvine.  First serve is scheduled for 8:00 a.m.
