Hein and McKenna shine on Senior Day as women's tennis falls to UCLA

April 11, 2011

The 15th-ranked Arizona State women's tennis team (14-6) closed out the regular season with a rainy Pac-10 show down with No. 8 UCLA on Saturday at the Whiteman Tennis Center in Tempe, Ariz. Due to inclement weather, the match was postponed until 3 p.m., with UCLA taking the victory 4-2. With the shortened time frame, the doubles matches were not played.

On a day celebrating the Sun Devil seniors, both Micaela Hein and Kelcy McKenna notched victories for ASU. Also battling hard, senior Ashlee Brown took UCLA's Maya Johansson to three sets, but fell to the Bruin 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. Hein dispatched UCLA's top-ranked player, No. 44 Noelle Hickey, 6-5, 7-5. McKenna defeated UCLA's McCall Jones, ranked 58th in the nation, 6-2, 5-7, 6-2.

Arizona State was scheduled to compete against rival Arizona, April 16 in Tempe, Ariz., however, the Wildcats will forfeit their remaining two matches because their student-athletes have reached their maximum participation limits for the season. The forfeit will count as a 7-0 victory for the Sun Devils and will give ASU the point for tennis in the Territorial Cup.
