Cal women upset Georgia in National Indoors

   Eighth-ranked Cal edged No. 4 Georgia 4-3 Saturday in the quarterfinals of the ITA National Women's Team Indoor Championships in Charlottesville, Va.
   Freshman Maegan Manasse, ranked 31st, beat Mia King 7-6 (5), 6-3 at No. 6 singles to give Cal the victory.
   “As a freshman, that was Maegan’s first time to be in a three-all situation with the entire match coming down to her, and she just thrived,” Cal coach Amanda Augustus said on calbears.com. “That’s why she’s good fit on the team – she’s a competitor and loves representing Cal."
   Cal (5-0) avenged a 4-1 loss to Georgia in last year's ITA Indoor quarterfinals. But at No. 1 singles, fourth-ranked Lauren Herring of Georgia topped No. 26 Anett Schutting 7-6 (3), 6-1.
   The Bears will play No. 10 Duke (10-0) in today's semifinals. No. 5 UCLA will face No. 16 Northwestern, which upset second-ranked Florida 4-2, in the other semifinal.
