WOMEN’S TENNIS FALLS ON THE ROAD SATURDAY AT ARIZONA

TUCSON, Ariz. – Playing their first match in three weeks, the Sacramento State women's tennis team (0-3) fell on the road, 4-0, in Tucson against the Arizona Wildcats (3-3).

The match was Sacramento State's first since playing on the road at San Francisco on Jan. 27. The team was supposed to play at Saint Mary's this past Saturday, Feb. 16, but that match was rescheduled due to rain (April 9).

In doubles play, the number one duo of Carolina Chernyetsky and Jayden Nielsen battled it out with Arizona's number one pair, playing to a 4-4 score.

Unfortunately, while Chernyetsky and Nielsen went toe-to-toe with the Wildcats, the pairs of Jenna Dorian/Maria Gonzalez and Sofi Wicker/Frana Ugarkovic both dropped their matchups, ceding the doubles point to Arizona.

In singles play, Sacramento State dropped the first three matches of the afternoon, all in straight sets, as they fell as a team, 4-0. Arizona remained a undefeated at home this year with the win.

The loss is Sacramento State's third on the year. All three of their matches have taken place on the road so far this season. The Hornets do not play their 2019 home opener until Friday, March 1 when they host Southern Utah.

Before then, the Hornets will play another road match tomorrow as they take on Grand Canyon University on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 10 am.
