FORT COLLINS, Colo.--The Colorado State women’s tennis team will conclude regular season play for the 2014 fall season. The Rams will match up against Wyoming on Saturday, April 19, 2014. The Rams enter the weekend with an overall record of 3-12, 0-5 in the Mountain West. Colorado State is coming off of a tough loss to in-state rival Northern Colorado. Saturday’s match is senior day for senior captains Kaley Schultz and Lauren Pick.
Schultz first came to Colorado State in 2010 as a freshman from Poway, Calif. During her time as a Ram she has compiled over 20 singles victories and 20 doubles victories. She has served as captain of the Rams for the last two seasons.
“Kaley has been a great influence on our team over her four years, she’s showed great leadership and she’s had a very positive influence on the team,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “She’s been injured a lot of her career, but when she’s played she’s given 110 percent.”
Pick also came to Colorado State in 2010 as a freshman from Albuquerque N.M. In her four years she has compiled over 15 victories in both singles and doubles. She, along with Schultz has served as a team captain for the last two seasons.
“Lauren Pick has been a great kid all four years,” said Messick. “She’s improved tremendously over her time here, she along with Kaley, have provided great leadership as captains of the team.”
Wyoming enters Saturday’s match with an overall record of 9-7, 3-1 in conference play. The Cowgirls are coming off of back-to-back conference victories against Boise State and Utah State. Veronica Popovici has compiled an impressive 8-7 record at the No. 1 position for the Cowgirls, she owns an 18-10 record overall this season. Popovici also holds a 3-1 record in conference play at the No. 1 position.

“We have Wyoming coming up this weekend, it’s our last home match, conference match and it’s senior day; so it’s a pretty important match,” said Messick. “We’re struggling with injuries right now so we’re just going to have to the best we can with the healthy players that we have, and hopefully make it a great experience for our seniors.”
The format is three, eight-game pro-set doubles matches followed by six best-of-three set-singles matches. The team that wins two or more of the three doubles matches receives one point. Each singles match is worth one point. Four or more points are required to win the team match.
