Stanford women drop out of top 10

   Despite overwhelming two Pacific-12 Conference opponents, the Stanford women dropped out of the top 10 in this week's college rankings.
   The Cardinal (9-2, 2-0) fell from No. 10 to No. 12 after dominating Utah 7-0 and then-No. 47 Colorado 6-1 at Stanford.
   The Cal women (9-2, 2-0) also slipped two notches to No. 9 after blanking Colorado and Utah 7-0 in Berkeley.
   Defending national champion UCLA jumped from No. 12 to No. 2 after defeating then-No. 3 USC and then-No. 4 Baylor last week. Alabama improved from No. 9 to No. 6 after beating then-No. 6 Georgia in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
   The San Francisco women (7-4) upset No. 38 BYU in San Francisco to soar 33 spots to No. 39, the biggest jump by any team (men or women). 
   Stanford's Carol Zhao rose one spot to No. 3 in the women's singles rankings, and Cal's Maegan Manasse fell two places to No. 4.
   Virginia's Collin Altamirano, a freshman from Sacramento, debuted in the men's singles rankings at No. 70. He knocked off No. 40 Max Tchoutakian of Baylor 6-2, 6-2 on Court 3 in Waco, Texas.
   Altamirano, the USTA boys 18 champion in 2013 and runner-up last year, is 7-0 in singles (1-0 at No. 2, 2-0 at No. 3 and 4-0 at No. 4).
   In dual matches today, the No. 60 San Jose State women blitzed visiting Southern Utah 7-0, the Liberty women of Lynchburg, Va., defeated No. 71 Pacific 5-2 in Stockton, and the visiting Utah State men topped Fresno State 4-1.
