Despite rain, No. 12 Cal outlast No. 13 Southern California

BERKELEY, Calif. -- After a short rain spell delayed play for 95 minutes, 12th-ranked California quickly wrapped up its Pac-12 dual match with No. 13 USC, winning 4-0 on Friday at the Hellman Tennis Complex. Anett Schutting, a Cal senior ranked 30th, beat Gabriella DeSimone 6-2, 6-2 on court three to clinch the contest.

The rain -- which lasted 10-15 minutes -- hit at 7 p.m., with the Golden Bears and Trojans in the midst of singles. Cal led 1-0 at that point after capturing the doubles point. After the Cal staff worked quickly to dry the courts, successive wins by Lynn Chi, Klara Fabikova and then Schutting gave the Bears the victory.
