    FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State's Anastasia Petukhova and Bianca Modoc met Stanford's Mallory Burdette and Stacey Tan in the quarterfinals of the ITA Northwest Region on Sunday in Palo Alto, Calif., with the Cardinal duo advancing to the semifinals.

    Burdette and Tan came away with an 8-5 win in the matchup and will face teammates Logan Hansen and Jennifer Yen in the semifinals.

    "We had some chances and it was a winnable match, but we weren't able to capitalize," Fresno State head coach Simon Thibodeau said.

    Sunday's match concluded the tournament for the Bulldogs and they will next be in action at the ITA National Indoor Championships in New Haven, Conn., on Nov. 5-8.
