Jon Messick QUOTABLES
(on beginning the spring campaign)
"We’re excited to get started. We are in our second week of practice in the spring season and we are getting to the point where we are ready to play against someone other than ourselves. You get to that point where there is only so much you can do against each other and now we have to go out an dplay other teams. The good part is, after we play CU this weekend, we’ll find out where our strength and weekends are and we can work on them throughout the year."
On Wednesday, Head Coach Jon Messick announced the addition of freshman Celine Voss, who comes to Colorado State from Anrsberg, Germany. Voss played five seasons of club tennis with TuS Bruchhausen 02 and spent one year as a foreign exchange student at Fort Collins High School where she competed in the No. 1 singles position.
"I think she is going to bring some extra depth to the team right away," Messick said. "How quickly she’ll to be ready to go will be hard to say but once she is ready to go and gets a lot of practices under her belt, she’ll help the team right away."
The University of Colorado opened its spring campaign with a home victory, 7-0, over Northern Colorado before losing to Boise State, 4-3, out of the Mountain West. The Buffaloes No. 1 singles player, Julyette Steur, went 1-1 in the first two matches of 2014. In the No. 2 position, Alex Aiello earned her 11th victory of the season when she defeated Boise State’s Stephanie Catlin in straight sets.
