LINCOLN, Neb. – The Colorado State tennis team’s two-match road trip against nationally ranked opponents concluded Saturday, with a 7-0 loss to No. 42 Tulsa at the Nebraska Tennis Center.
No. 42 Tulsa (8-4, 1-1 Conference USA) became the first team to sweep the Rams (3-6, 0-0 Mountain West) this season.
“I didn’t think we played bad,” Head Coach Jon Messick said. “They (Tulsa) just jumped on us before we could get a chance to get anything going. Give Tulsa credit. They just took it to us on every court.”
CSU continues to struggle in doubles competition, losing the doubles point for the seventh straight match. Laura Neal and Caitlin Fluegge fell at the No. 1 position to the nation’s No. 33 doubles pair, Alexandra Kichoutkin and JoAnne Karaitiana, 8-1, while Tori Arneson and Melissa Holzinger were defeated at No. 2 by Anastasia Erofeeva and Ewa Szatkowska, 8-4. Then, Rebecca Row and Michelle Farley earned an 8-3 victory over Lauren Mulhern and Veronika Wojakowska at No. 3.
In singles competition, Tulsa demonstrated its national ranking, taking two-set wins at all six positions. Mulhern lost for only the third time this dual season, to Row, 6-1, 6-1, at No. 5.
The Rams return home to Miramont South next Saturday to face St. Louis. First serve will take place at 5 p.m.
