DENVER, Colo. - The Colorado State women's tennis team fell to No. 58 Denver, 7-0, on Tuesday, its sixth road match on this 10 match road trip.
In doubles, the Rams dropped all three matches giving the Pioneers the doubles point. With junior Adriana Wojakowska missing her third consecutive match, senior Lauren Pick combined with Natalie Heffron at the No. 1 doubles spot. Pick and Heffron nearly picked up a victory but ultimately dropped a close match to the Pioneers' Sonja Radosevic and Kathryn Hughes 8-7. Denver picked up the doubles point after rattling off victories in the Nos. 2 and 3 match ups.
In singles action, Denver captured three consecutive victories at Nos. 2, 5 and 4 to seal the match. The Pioneers then went on to win the rest of the singles matches to secure the shutout. In the No. 1 spot, Heffron gave Maureen Slattery everything she had in the first set before Slattery won in a tie breaker. In the end Heffron was defeated in straight sets.
The Rams will now travel to Reno, Nev., for a Mountain West Conference showdown against Nevada on Friday, March 28th. They will follow that up with a match against Grand Canyon in Reno on Saturday, March 29th.
