Women’s Tennis’ winning streak
The last time the Cardinal Women’s Tennis team lost a match on its home court, Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync and Ricky Martin were at the top of the music charts, and Bill Clinton was in the White House. It was Feb. 27, 1999, when Cal pulled a 5-4 upset. As of March 7 of this year, the team was recognized as enjoying the longest active home winning streak of any intercollegiate sport in NCAA Division I athletics with a 173-match winning streak overall in contests played at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium. That’s 141 victories in a row during regular-season play, combined with a 32-0 record in NCAA Tournament matches played at home.
