COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado State women’s tennis team opened play today at the Air Force Invitational in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The flighted tournament’s first day of play featured the Rams matching up against Buffalo, West Virginia, Air Force and Northern Colorado. 

In singles, senior Lauren Pick and sophomore Maddie Buxton picked up victories for the Rams. Pick defeated University of Buffalo’s Gopika Kapoor by default. Buxton played a hard-fought match against Buffalo’s Marta Stoyanova defeating Stoyanova 6-2, 3-6, 6-2. These are CSU's first singles victories of the year. 

“I really thought Maddie played a great match against Stoyanova,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “She really battled out there and it was good to see her come out with a win.” 

In doubles, junior Natalie Heffron and junior Adriana Wojakowska defeated Buffalo’s Stoyanova and Margarita Kotok 8-6. 

“I really thought that we played well in doubles all the way around,” said Messick. “I know I sound like a broken record, but the fact that we have some injuries has really given some players a chance to step up and play at a higher level than they’re used to playing, and I think the team responded well today.”


 

 

Multiple Rams will be in action tomorrow in the second day of tournament play. In singles,  Wojakowska will play Stephanie Catlin of Northern Colorado at 10:30 MST, Pick will play Mary Meyers of Air Force also at 10:30 a.m., MST, Heffron will play Dorottya Jonas from University of Wyoming also at 10:30 a.m., MST and  Buxton will play Kaja Mrgole from University of West Virginia at 12 p.m., MST.
