FRESNO, Calif. - The Colorado State women’s tennis team lost 4-0 to San Josè State in the first round of the Mountain West Championships.
“I think we ran into a really good team today so hats off to them,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “They played really well and they had a good day. I think we got them on a really good day. They played flawlessly and gave us no breathing room. They jumped on us and we never got into a rhythm. I think they took us out of our game and we never could get on track.”
In doubles, the Spartans, who are competing in their first MW Championships, claimed wins at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions to secure the doubles point. Gaelle Rey and Marie Klocker defeated Adriana Wojakowska and Natalie Heffron at the No. 1 position and Julianna Bacelar and Jessica Willett defeated Kaley Schultz and Lauren Pick at the No. 2 position, 8-2 and 8-4, respectively.
In singles, the Spartans defeated the Rams in straight sets at the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 positions to secure the overall match. Klocker defeated Heffron 6-2, 6-1 at the No. 1 position, Rey defeated Wojakowska 6-1, 6-0 at the No. 2 spot and Sabastian Leon-Chao defeated Pick 6-0, 6-0 to secure the shutout.
The loss not only ends the Rams’ season (3-14, 0-7 MW), but the careers of two of the most decorated athletes in program history. Schultz and Pick have had tremendous careers for Colorado State, compiling over 15 career victories each.
“I think today was really important for them,” Messick said of seniors Schultz and Pick. “It was kind of tough on them as they put everything they had into today’s match. They were disappointed in the result but they both have been significant factors to the team both on and off the court. I will say this though, Kaley had some unbelievable points today and so did LP (Lauren Pick), so that was really great to see out of them in their last match.”
