URBANA, Ill. -

Junior Samantha Vickers and sophomore Isaura Enrique upset the No. 8-ranked Kristie Ahn and Nicole Gibbs of Stanford in straight sets during the first round of the NCAA Women's Tennis Doubles Championship.

Vickers and Enrique, ranked No. 15 in the country, defeated the Stanford duo, 6-2, 6-4, to advance to the Round of 16. The Tulsa tandem will face Arizona State's Jacqueline Cako and Nicole Smith tomorrow. Cako and Smith are ranked No. 31 nationally, and are coming off of a 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 win over No. 19-ranked Breaunna Addison and Noel Scott of Texas. 

"Sam and Isaura came out early on in the doubles and played great against the seeded and No. 8-ranked Ahn and Gibbs," Head Coach Dean Orford commented. Sam and Isaura jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. They showed great toughness throughout the match, and it was a solid performance in the first round. We can't wait to see what they will do tomorrow."

In singles action, Vickers fell in the second round to No. 44-ranked Stefanie Tan of TCU, 6-2, 6-2.

"Sam has enjoyed a tremendous singles season," Orford said. "She was an anchor for us at the top of our lineup this year, and had an impressive 17-match winning streak for us. She's works hard on and off the court, and we're excited to see what she brings to the table in singles play next year."
