WHITTIER - UC Santa Cruz broke a five-match skid and defeated the Whittier Poets 7-2 on Monday.
"The Slugs responded really well in their first match back after finals," said head coach Amy Jensen. "We wanted to elevate our doubles play, compete with more intensity internally as well as visibly, and embrace the challenge and discomfort of competition. We did all of those things today."
The Slugs continue Spring Break with a match against Linfield Thursday morning at Redlands.
