FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State women’s tennis team finished day one of the ITA Mountain Region Championships on a good start, despite rain delays. The Rams advanced five players to the second round of singles of the 120 players from around the region.
“So far this is the most competitive year for regionals,” said Head Coach Jon Messick. “It was a really good first day against our competitors.”
Freshman Abby Stevens won her first round match despite losing the first set. She won 1-6, 7-6, 6-3.
“It’s been a good effort for the team and for the freshmen too,” said Messick.
Freshmen Kendall Heitzner and Mollie Cooper eased into the second round. Heitzner won 6-2, 6-4 over UNC’s Jen Buchanan. Cooper won 6-1, 6-3 over Kasey Bacon of Idaho State. Sophomore Natalie Heffron also eased into the second round, winning 6-4, 6-0.
“It’s a really good start for the tournament,” said Messick.
“Because of the weather, it was a long day,” said Messick. "Tomorrow could be a really long day too.”
Rain is forecast for Thursday in Las Vegas.
Despite the weather, the Rams will return to play Thursday morning for singles and doubles matches.
