Stanford, Calif. — In the season’s dual match opener, Saint Mary’s battled but ultimately fell to defending national champion Stanford at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium Friday afternoon.

The Gaels fell in a 1-0 hole after the Cardinal captured the doubles point with wins on courts 1 and 2. SMC claimed the win on Court 3 with a 6-2 victory by the duo of Parminder Kaur and Vanessa Nommensen.

First year player Danielle McIntyre held her own on court 3 of singles action. Despite the result, McIntyre fought in all points and was the last match to conclude on the day.

Up next for the Gaels is another nationally-ranked Pac-12 program, as SMC will travel to No. 25 UCLA. The Gaels will take on the Bruins on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 12 p.m.
