FULLERTON, Calif. – The Colorado State women’s tennis team fell to Cal State Fullerton, 7-0, on Sunday in its first of three road matches in California.

In doubles, the Rams dropped all three matches giving the Titans the doubles point. Kaley Schultz, who has battled injuries for almost a year, played her first match of the season with doubles partner Maddie Buxton at the No. 3 spot. The duo nearly picked up a victory, as they were narrowly edged by the Titans’ Melanie Abella and Kalika Slevcove 8-7 (7-4). 

In singles, Cal State Fullerton captured three consecutive victories at Nos. 2, 6 and 5 to seal the match. The Titans then went on to win the rest of the singles matches to secure the shutout. 

Rams’ senior captain Lauren Pick battled the Titans’ Megan Sandford to three sets at the No. 4 position, but was eventually defeated by a final score of 6-3, 6-7 (0-5), 10-7. 

The Rams will play Thursday, March 20 when they match up against Vanguard at 3 p.m. MT. They wrap up their road trip when they play Cal State Los Angeles, Saturday March 22 at 12 p.m.
