FORT COLLINS, COLO. - The Colorado State women's tennis team lost a tough match to Air Force, 6-1, Saturday, in their first conference match of the season.
"I think that the bottom line is that Air Force outplayed us, I thought in spots we played very well and in other spots we just weren't ready to play the next ball, give them credit I thought they played very well," said head coach Jon Messick. "We had a few spots where we had an opportunity to make the match close but Air Force just didn't let us in. I was really proud of Adriana Wojakowska, she played the way I would have liked to see the whole team play today. She played tactically very well, and she played the right kind of game against her opponent. I thought we had a very good chance at the doubles point against Air Force who is one of the better doubles teams, but they just outplayed us when they needed to."
The Rams lost the crucial doubles point, by losing two out of the three sets. Kendall Heitzner and Kaley Schultz dropped the No. 1 doubles match to Melissa Cecil and Hannah Dake, 8-5. Natalie Heffron and Adriana Wojakowska defeated Tiffany Tran and Marcelli Magday 8-5 at the No. 3 position. Abby Stevens and Mollie Cooper lost their first doubles match of the season to Christine Molina and Natasha Rizvi 8-5 at the No. 2 position to give Air Force the doubles point.
In singles, the Falcons won five out of the possible six singles matches to clinch the overall match. Wojakowska won her fist dual match of the spring season by defeating the Falcons' Mary Meyers 7-5, 6-4 at the No. 6 position for the Rams' lone singles victory.
The Rams will look to capture a victory tomorrow when they take on Rhode Island Sunday, March 10, at 11 a.m., in Colorado Springs.
