Cal's Schutting, Chi reach Pac-12 semifinals

   Two Cal women reached the singles semifinals of the Pacific-12 Conference Championships in Ojai, Calif.
   Third-seeded Anett Schutting and fifth-seeded Lynn Chi advanced in contrasting fashion on Friday. Schutting outlasted unseeded Desirae Krawczyk of Arizona State 3-6, 6-1, 7-5, and Chi routed fourth-seeded Carol Zhao of Stanford 6-1, 6-1.
   Krawczyk had ousted No. 8 seed and defending champion Kyle McPhillips of UCLA in the first round.
   In today's semifinals at 10:30 a.m., Schutting will face sixth-seeded Zoe Scandalis of USC, and Chi will play top-seeded Jennifer Brady of UCLA.
   In today's doubles semis at 9 a.m., top-seeded Kristie Ahn and Zhao will meet fourth-seeded Chi and Schutting, and Kaitlyn Christian and Giuliana Olmos of USC will take on Courtney Dolehide and Chanelle Van Nguyen of UCLA in a matchup of unseeded teams. Olmos is from Fremont in the San Francisco Bay Area.
   Men play as teams rather than individuals in the Pac-12 tournament. In Friday's semifinals, top-seeded and top-ranked USC dominated fourth-seeded Cal 4-1, and second-seeded UCLA whipped seventh-seeded Oregon 7-0. The Ducks had knocked off third-seeded Stanford in the quarterfinals.
