San Diego, Calif. – The women’s tennis squad wrapped up the first day of action at the Aztec Invitational with wins in singles and doubles action Friday afternoon.
The Falcons top pair, Elizabeth Barnickel and TJ Fumagalli picked up a win over Liberty University’s Bongart and Anderson in a stellar match-point comeback to open doubles action on a high note.
Freshman Meredith Jones battled her way to the semi-finals of four-flight, defeating Columbia’s Sarah Rahman in starlight sets, 6-3, 6-1.
“We had some matches were we showed big improvement,” said head coach Kim Gidley. “Our fall is all about getting experience and learning from match to match. Tomorrow we will have a chance to see what we've learned.”
The team's final fall tournament continues Saturday, Nov. 11, at 9 a.m. at the Aztec Tennis Center.
