Hornets Take 5 Of 6 Singles Matches In Win Over Aggies

April 4, 2003

FOLSOM, Claif. - The Sacramento State women's tennis team won five of the six singles matches en route to a 5-2 win over UC Davis Friday afternoon at SpareTime Indoor Courts.

With the loss the Aggies fall to 7-9 while the Hornets improve to 11-5.

UC Davis opened the match by winning two of the three singles matches to take a 1-0 lead. The Aggies won both the second and third doubles match as Gretchen Schantz and Ally Muller defeated Amanda Sanchez and Roberta Fessenko, 8-5 at No.2. At No.3, Christy Battig and Jennifer Fong defeated Cristina Revieccio and Petra Abraham, 8-6, to clinch the opening doubles point.

In singles play, the Hornets did not lose a set. The Aggies' lone victory came at No.2 where Schantz earned a victory when Ann Roslund retired in the first set with the score tied 1-1.

"Our doubles looked great today," said Aggie Head Coach Bill Maze. "I think we have got our rhythm back in doubles. As for singles, (Sacramento State) were tough. They have some international players that are very solid. It was a tough match for us, but a match that will help prepare us for the tough Division II teams we are going to face in the latter part of our schedule."

UC Davis will next be in action on Monday when it hosts Hawaii Pacific in a 2pm non-conference match at Hickey Courts.
