Cal's Manasse rises to No. 1 in nation

   Maegan Manasse of the Cal women jumped to No. 1, and Piedmont resident Mackenzie McDonald of the UCLA men rose to No. 2 in the latest national collegiate rankings released today.
   Manasse (28-3), a sophomore from Redondo Beach in the Los Angeles area, had been ranked No. 5. She became Cal's first top-ranked singles player since Zsofi Susanyi tied for No. 1 on Feb. 12, 2013, according to calbears.com. The Bears' Jana Juricova, the 2011 NCAA singles champion, also reached No. 1.
   All of Cal's six singles players are ranked. In addition to Manasse, Susanyi, a senior, is 20th; junior Lynn Chi, last year's NCAA runner-up to Virginia's Danielle Collins, is 26th; freshman Karla Popovic is 28th; junior Klara Fabikova is 34th; and sophomore Denise Starr is 59th.
   Cal remained fifth in the team rankings after advancing to the semifinals of the ITA National Women's Team Indoor Championship in Charlottesville, Va.
   McDonald (19-3), a sophomore, had been ranked No. 7. Virginia's Thai-Son Kwiatkowski, a sophomore from Charlotte, N.C., improved from No. 4 to No. 1.
