Sports Briefs: Ruggers Look to Stay Undefeated

The Cal rugby team continues its early-season docket this weekend when it hosts Chico State Saturday before taking on Westmont College Sunday.

The Bears haven't met CSU since 1997, when Cal recorded a 74-3 victory. Last season, the Wildcats were left off of the Bears' schedule, and two years ago the game was called because of bad weather. Consequently, this weekend Cal will face a dramatically different CSU team than the Bears last faced.

Since 97, Chico has moved from Division II up to Division I because of their successful showing in the end-of-the-year tournaments the past couple seasons. Bringing in a much more athletic and confident team, the Wildcats expect to play a more competitive game against the Bears than they did in the past.

Meanwhile, Westmont presents a relative unknown to Cal. The school only began playing the sport recently, and the Bears have never faced it.

Both games will be played at Witter Field, and begin at 1 p.m.

Jensen Heads to

National Tourney

Cal women's tennis player Amy Jensen will compete in the women's singles portion of the Rolex National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships beginning today in Farmers Branch, Texas.

A two-time defending NCAA doubles champion, Jensen is the No. 9 seed in a field of 32 players who will compete at Brookhaven Country Club located outside of Dallas. The tournament is the third leg of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Grand Slam.

The No. 1 player on the Bears squad will attempt to atone for her early struggles this season. Jensen is 1-2 in Pac-10 play with losses to Washington's Kristina Kraszewski and Oregon's Monika Gieczys.
