FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State women’s tennis team began fall play today at the University Tennis Complex and performed well. The Rams won all but one match in the first of the singles flights and three of the four doubles matches in the first round.
“Our goal was to play consistently and aggressively,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “We weren’t caught up with winning or losing. We wanted to get confidence.”
In round one of the singles flight, the Rams started off strong by winning every match. Junior Kaley Schultz defeated Tarleton State’s Melanie Barnes, 6-1, 7-5.
This prepared us for the future. It was a successful day, but the best part of the day was the kids played the way we wanted to play.
“It was a good start for the freshmen,” said Messick. “There were some nerves here and there, but we got through it.”
The Rams maintained their momentum going into round one of doubles play, winning three matches. Sophomore Adriana Wojakowska and freshman Jennifer Weissmann were the first pair to clinch a 8-3 victory, followed by sophomore Natalie Heffron and freshman Mollie Cooper’s win, 8-2. Pick and Wojakowska won 8-4 over Tarleton State. Schultz and freshman Kendall Heitzner played a competitive match but fell short, falling 9-8 (5) against Tarleton State.
“This prepared us for the future,” said Messick. “It was a successful day. We played the way we wanted to play.”
The Rams will return to the courts Saturday morning for day two of the CSU Invitational. The tournament will begin at 9 a.m. and will feature round two of singles followed by round two of doubles. For more information and to get daily score updates, visit CSURams.com.
