Stanford, Cal women reach Pac-12 singles semis

   At least one woman from a Northern California team will play in the singles final of the Pacific-12 Conference Championships in Ojai, Calif.
   And there could be an all-Stanford or all-Bay Area final.
   Eighth-ranked Anett Schutting, a Cal junior, will meet No. 19 Krista Hardebeck, a Stanford freshman, today in one semifinal. No. 29 Kristie Ahn, a Stanford junior, will face No. 40 Kyle McPhillips, a UCLA freshman, in the other. Both matches are scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.
   McPhillips led No. 5 Zsofi Susanyi of Cal 6-4, 3-2 in Friday's quarterfinals when the Bears star retired with an undisclosed injury.
   Stanford junior Nicole Gibbs, the defending singles champion and reigning NCAA singles and doubles champ, is playing in a $50,000 tournament in Charlottesville, Va., this week. She lost in the singles quarterfinals Friday but is scheduled to play in the doubles semifinals with Shelby Rogers today.
