COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado State women’s tennis team wrapped up the second day at the Air Force Invitational in Colorado Springs, Colo.
In singles, the top flight featured the Rams’ No. 1 player junior Natalie Heffron who defeated Wyoming’s Dorottya Jonas 6-4, 6-2. Heffron then lost to Lizette Blankers 6-2, 6-3. The fourth flight featured sophomore Maddie Buxton who defeated West Virginia’s Kaja Mrgole 6-2, 6-0. Buxton then lost to Wyoming’s Silviya Zhelyazkova 6-3, 6-0.
“I really thought we had a good day at singles,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “Two players made main-draw semifinals. I thought overall we had a little bit stronger wins than yesterday.”
Junior Adriana Wojakowska and sophomore Mollie Cooper also picked up victories for the Rams on Saturday. Cooper defeated Northern Colorado’s Chrissie Hoolahan 2-6, 6-2, 10-5, while Wojakowska defeated Miranda Podlas 4-6, 7-6, 10-2.
In doubles, the Rams dropped all three matches they played.
“I was very disappointed in our doubles play today,” Messick said. “After we lost our last doubles match I pulled the team together for a team meeting, and I think that lit a fire under them to go out and preform in singles, which we did.”
Multiple Rams will be in action tomorrow in the final day of tournament play. Heffron and Buxton each have a chance to take third place in their respective brackets with victories.
