COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - In their last match of the regular 2011-12 season, the CSU women's tennis team fell to Air Force, 6-1. Colorado State's sole win of the day was at the No. 2 position where Natalie Heffron defeated Christine Molina, 6-3, 6-1.
The loss against the Falcons pushed the Rams record back to 5-15, 0-7 MW, while lifting Air Force to a record of 17-6, 3-3 MW.
In doubles, play remained competitive before Air Force surged past CSU to tally victories at the Nos. 1 and 3 positions. The closest match was at the No. 2 position where Lauren Mulhern and Emese Kardhordo fell, 8-6, to their Air Force opponents.
After gaining the first doubles point, the Falcons pushed forward to notch the second point of the dual, putting Air Force up, 2-0.
Colorado State quickly responded as Heffron gained the Rams' first and only point of the dual. Following Heffron's match, CSU fell at the Nos. 4, 5 and 1 positions.
Closing out the dual for Colorado State was Kaley Schultz who fell in a third-set tie-breaking decision to Air Force's Tahlia Smoke, 3-6, 6-4, 1-0(8).
The Rams will return to the court Thursday for Day 1 of the MW championships. Play will be held in San Diego, Calif., and will go through April 29.
