The women’s tennis team’s 4-3 victory over WCC rival Saint Mary’s on Feb. 1 gave head coach Aby Ryan her 100th career victory. Senior Mariko Kawakami clinched the match at No. 5 singles with her come-from-behind victory over the Gaels’ Megan Schulman. Ryan, now in her ninth season as head coach, kept the ball from Kawakami’s match to mark her coaching milestone. “To reach 100 victories against Saint Mary’s makes it even sweeter,” Ryan said. “They’ve been a huge rival throughout the years.” Ryan is the winningest coach in the history of SCU’s women’s tennis program. Her record now stands at 100-86.
