PULLMAN, Wash. - The University of Nevada women's tennis team dropped a close contest on Friday with the Idaho Vandals by a score of 4-3.
The Wolf Pack (0-3) remains winless on the young season with the loss to the Vandals (2-5). The Pack came away with five victories on the day, three in singles action, led by Michelle Okhremchuk. She earned a singles victory over Victoria Lozano in three sets 0-6, 6-3, 6-1. Emma Verberne picked up the second singles victory, cruising past Almudena Sanz in straight sets 6-4, 6-2. The final singles victory came from Juliette Legendre, as she powered past Alejandra Lozano 6-2, 6-0.
"We played well in doubles and got the point, but we couldn't close it out," head coach Guillaume Tonelli said. "We need to come out more focused for a match against another quality opponent tomorrow."
