The Colorado tennis fell 6-1 to nationally-ranked California on Friday in Pac-12 play.

The No. 8/14 Golden Bears swept the No. 1 and No. 3 doubles matches for an early 1-0 lead at Rocky Mountain Tennis Center and never looked back. They improved to 10-3 overall and 4-1 in the conference.

For the Buffs (9-7, 1-4), Annabelle Andrinopoulos fought a hard match in the No. 3 singles spot but could not hold off Cal's Denise Starr, as she dropped her match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4.

Louise Ronaldson pushed the nation's No. 7 ranked singles player, Karla Popovic in two strong sets but fell 6-4, 6-3. Ronaldson battled an impressive Popovic who now owns a 30-3 singles record.

Nuria Ormeño Ruiz had one of the toughest matchups on the day as she faced No. 45 ranked Maegan Manasse of Cal. The matchup was back and forth the whole time as Ormeño won the first set 7-5, but dropped the second 5-7. Ormeño pushed one of the best singles players in the country to a third set where they kept it even most of the way. Ormeño took it to four all until Manasse took control and went up to win the third set 6-4.

Cal's nationally-ranked players took control of the match to go up 4-0 and solidify the match win for the Bears. Kyra Wojcik and Chloe Hule both dropped their matches as well but the shining light for the Buffs was Brigitte Beck.

Beck took home the only win for the Buffs beating Cal's Stephanie Lin in straight sets 6-3, 6-4.
