RENO, Nev. – The Colorado State women’s tennis team fell to Nevada, 7-0, Friday, in Reno, Nev.
“I thought even though it was a lopsided score, we played a lot better than we did against Denver,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “We had situations on every court where we could dictate points. We didn’t get the results we wanted but at least we played better.”
In doubles, the Rams dropped all three sets giving the Wolfpack the doubles point. Newcomer Celine Voss and partner Maddie Buxton had a early lead at the No. 3 doubles position but were eventually defeated by Caroline Konigsfeldt and Monika Magusiak 8-5.
In singles, Nevada captured three consecutive victories at Nos. 5, 2 and 1 to seal the match, then went on to win the rest of the singles matches to secure the shutout.
Buxton really challenged Nevada’s No. 4 player Konigsfeldt, but it was just not enough as Konigsfeldt bested Buxton 7-6 (9-7), 6-1.
CSU’s match against Grand Canyon was originally scheduled for Saturday but due to forecasted bad weather the match will move to Sunday, March 30 at 11 a.m. MT. The non-conference matchup will be played at Caughlin Club.
