WOMEN’S TENNIS CONTINUED FALL ACTION WITH FULL WEEKEND AT NEVADA INVITATIONAL

RENO, Nev. - Sacramento State traveled up I-80 to compete in a three-team tournament at Nevada over the weekend. The Hornets played four full matches over the three-day event.

The event featured Sacramento State, host Nevada, and CSU Stanislaus. Competition began Friday morning at 10 a.m. with a match between the Hornets and Warriors and did not conclude until after 2 p.m. on Sunday. Each school played four team singles matches and four team doubles matches.

The Hornets traveled six players to the event - Paige Alter, Shauna Casey, Grace Dodd, Megan Tagaloa, Ege Tomey, and Frana Ugarkovic. They opened the event Friday morning by taking four of six singles matches from Stanislaus. Tagaloa, Dodd,  Alter, and Ugarkovic all came away with wins.

The Hornets second matchup of the day was met with less success as Nevada swept Sacramento State, 5-0.

Saturday featured another doubleheader, again against Stanislaus and Nevada. The Hornets took two singles matches in their first match thanks to the play of Ege Tomey and Dodd, but again ran into trouble against Nevada later in the day. 

Sunday was all doubles play for each of the three schools. The duo of Dodd and Tagaloa took a match from a pair from Stanislaus in the morning while it was Dodd again, this time with partner Ugarkovic, taking another from Stanislaus in the afternoon. 

In total, Sacramento State competed in 24 individual singles matches and 12 doubles matches in the span of 72 hours. All three schools combined for 34 singles matches and 18 doubles.

Freshman Grace Dodd led the Hornets in both singles and doubles over the weekend, winning twice in both. As a team, the Hornets finished 1-3.
