FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State women's tennis team will take on Montana Sunday, Feb. 24, in 9 a.m. match at Miramont Lifestyle Fitness. It will be the Rams' second home match of the 2013 spring season.
Montana comes into the weekend match with a record of 2-4, with wins coming against North Dakota and South Dakota. Sophomore Sasha Carter has a dual record of 3-2 and an overall singles record of 11-5. Carter and doubles partner, junior Maddy Murray, performed well in doubles in their match Feb. 18, defeating Nevada's Michelle Okhremchuk and Emma Verberne 8-4 at the No.1 spot.
The Rams lost a tough match Sunday against Nebraska 7-0. In that match freshmen Abby Stevens and Mollie Cooper defeated Nebraska's Lauren Wagner and Maike Zeppernick 8-7, (7-4), at No. 3 doubles. Rams freshman Maddie Buxton, in her first singles match of the 2013 spring season, was narrowly edged by the Huskers' Wagner 2-6, 6-3, with a 12-10 tie-breaker to give Wagner the point. On Saturday, the Rams lost another tough match to Illinois State 5-2. Despite the loss, freshman Abby Stevens notched her second singles victory in a row, and claimed her first career doubles victory, partnering with Cooper.
Quotes from Jon Messick
"Montana is a tough team and they have played a tough schedule so far," said head coach Jon Messick. "Their losses this spring have come to really good teams, and they have been playing at a high level. Montana is also a very deep team, and we are going to have our work cut out for us, but if we play well I think we will have a shot at winning."
