TEMPE -- The Arizona State women's tennis team continued full steam ahead as they get into the back half of their season, rolling over San Diego State to a 7-0 sweep at Whiteman Tennis Center on Saturday afternoon.

After moving up six spots into the top-20 of the ITA Tennis rankings this week, the No. 19 Sun Devils (11-4, 4-1) got off to the hot start in doubles, taking the point for the 13th time in their 15 games this season.

Junior Kassidy Jump and freshman doubles partner Sammi Hampton clinched their 11th-straight victory with a 6-3 win over Paola Diza de Regules and Kennedy Davis of SDSU.

The senior pair of Desirae Krawczyk and Stephanie Vlad helped clinch the doubles point not minutes later with a 6-3 victory on court two over Tami Nguyen and Taylor Lederman. 

In singles, Krawczyk -- ranked No. 24 -- was on another level and seemed to breeze through her match with Jana Buth. After shutting her out in the first set, 6-0, Krawczyk didn't let up as she burned through the second set with a 6-2 win. The Devils were up 2-0.

After continuing their success in doubles, Hampton and Jump both got back on the right foot in singles as well, finishing for the third and fifth point for ASU. Hampton won in straight sets -- 6-2, 6-2 -- while Jump decided to go the long route with a three-set tiebreak, eventually winning 7-5, 4-6, [11-9]. 

In between those two was the clinching fourth point captured by Vlad over Aztec Kennedy Davis. After clinching the first set with a 6-4 victory, she never trailed in route to a 6-1 win in the second.

Junior Gussie "The Grinder" O'Sullivan decided to avoid playing an extra set in the heat of the sun, giving the Devils an extra fifth point with a 6-1, 7-5 win over Taylor Lederman on court six. 

Panoho, however, decided to take over the grinder approach to keep her singles streak alive. She won the third tiebreak set, 10-8, over Diaz de Regules to move to four-straight singles victories. 

The Sun Devil women get a day of rest on Sunday before returning to Whiteman on Monday for a rare double header. They'll host NAU at 10 a.m. PT before welcoming Montana at 2 p.m. PT.
