MORAGA, Calif. --
Aggie sophomores Kristina Breisacher and Nikita Pradeep proved to be a good doubles duo this tournament weekend when they won the crown for the Flight "B" doubles play on the last day of the Saint Mary's Fall Invitational in Moraga, Calif.

Breisacher and Pradeep carried their doubles victory streak to the Final Round in the Flight "B" main draw as they defeated the No. 2 seeded duo Savannah Sender and Julie Vereecke from UC Santa Barbara, 8-5.

Senior Lani-Rae Green was another Aggie player that advanced to the finals after her Flight "A" consolation Semifinal Round match victory over San Jose State's Tamara Culibrk in straight sets, 6-1, 7-6(2), but it was in the third set of the Final Round when the No. 1 seed Elizaveta Volodko from UC Santa Barbara secured the crown instead, 6-1, 4-6, 1-0(6). 

In the Flight "A" extra consolation play, Breisacher defeated UC Santa Barbara's Lise Sentenac in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2, while Green and freshman Shirley Hall partnered up to defeat Sacramento State doubles duo Frana Ugarkovic and Sofia Wicker in the extra doubles consolation play, 8-2. 

Green and senior Kelsie Bryant also teamed up to compete in the extra doubles consolation play, but were defeated by Pacific's Yuki Asami and Anna Ramos, 8-3. 

The women's tennis squad will have one week off from tournament play before returning to the courts on Oct. 19 for the ITA Northwest Regionals, their third and final tournament in the fall season schedule, which will be hosted by Stanford in Palo Alto, Calif.
