USAFA, Colo. – The Colorado State women’s tennis team fell to 3-9 and 0-2 in Mountain West matches this season after suffering a 7-0 defeat to Air Force on Sunday afternoon.
In doubles action, the Rams, who were playing without junior Natalie Heffron, dropped all three matches giving the Falcons the doubles point. In the No. 1 doubles match, senior Lauren Pick and junior Adriana Wojakowska competed hard before being defeated 8-6 by Natasha Rizvi and Mary Meyers. CSU’s Mollie Cooper and Kaley Schultz were defeated 8-0 and Maddie Buxton and Celine Voss are still looking for their first doubles victory together after dropping Sunday’s match 8-2.
In singles, the Falcons captured three consecutive victories at Nos. 2, 3 and 4 to seal the match. Air Force then went on to win the rest of the singles matches and secured the shutout. Freshman Celine Voss, playing in the No. 5 singles spot for the Rams, dropped the first set to Lily Forlini 1-6, but stormed back in the second set to win it 6-4. In the tiebreaker Forlini was too much for the freshman as Forlini won 10-4.
The Rams have concluded a 10-match road trip and will return home to begin a four-match home stretch on Friday, April 11. CSU will host conference foe Utah State at 2 p.m. MT. All matches are free for the public and Friday is the Rams’ annual Fan Appreciation Day.
