    FRESNO, Calif. - No. 26 Fresno State was defeated by top-ranked Stanford on Saturday at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium in Stanford, Calif.

    The Bulldogs' lone victory came from 27th-ranked Chloe Carlotti at No. 1 singles. The sophomore All-American took out No. 17 Amber Liu 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

    "Chloe played magnificently, and this is a very good win for her," head coach Kevin Epley said. "Unfortunately, Stanford was a little too much for us at the other positions. But I was happy with the way we competed. A match like this will help our young team down the road."

    The Cardinal jumped out to a 1-0 start by taking two of the three doubles matches. Fresno State's victory came at No. 3, where Vlatka Jovanovic and Kristy McRae defeated Emilia Anderson and Story Tweedie-Yates 9-7.

    In addition to Carlotti's match, Lucia Tallo's contest at No. 4 singles also went to three sets. Unfortunately, she fell to 13th-ranked Alice Barnes 6-1, 4-6, 6-4.

    Next up for Fresno State is a home match against 17th-ranked UNLV on Saturday at 11 a.m. The match is part of a doubleheader with the Bulldogs' men's team, who host Sacramento State at 2 p.m.
