FORT COLLINS, COLO. - The Colorado State women’s tennis team lost a 6-0 decision to conference rival San Diego State, Thursday in Greeley, Colo.
“San Diego State is ranked 41st in the country, and is one of the best teams we’ve played all year,” Messick said. “In spots I thought we really matched their play, but they’re a good team and we just weren’t able to sustain it. Some of the sets were very competitive. I thought we played well, we just played a very good team.”
The two teams did not participate in doubles play due to time constraints on the courts.
In singles, the Aztecs claimed all six points for the overall win. Abby Stevens against got the start at the No. 1 position for the Rams, but was edged 6-2, 6-3 by the Aztecs’ Julia Wais. Natalie Heffron played her opponent Alicia Aguilar very hard at the No. 2 position, but Aguilar just overpowered Heffron for the overall win.
The Rams are back in action tomorrow when they host another conference opponent No. 61 UNLV, at 6:30 p.m., at Miramont Lifestyle Fitness.
