OJAI - On the second day of the Pac-12 Conference Championships, freshman Kassidy Jump and junior Joanna Smith defeated top-seeded Callie Craig and Sara Pham of Utah, 8-4, to advance to the Invitational Semifinals, on Saturday morning in Ojai, Calif.
The freshman-junior pairing also defeated Allie Hueffner and Kadie Hueffner of Oregon earlier in the day in the Round of 16, 8-3.
Singles play didn't end as well for the Sun Devils. After upsetting Kyle McPhillips of UCLA the day prior in singles play, sophomore Desirae Krawczyk fell to third ranked Anett Schutting of Cal 3-6, 6-1, 7-5.
"I'm really hapy with her play and overall toughness this tournament," ASU head coach Sheila McInerney said in response to the rock-solid play of Krawczyk.
"She bounced back after losing the second set both yesterday and today. Desirae (Krawczyk) played at a high level both days and it can only help her down the road once the NCAA Tournament starts."
The Invitational semifinals will begin at 9:00 a.m. PDT
