PULLMAN, Wash. - The University of Nevada women's tennis team dropped its Saturday match against Washington State by a score of 5-2.
In the second game of its three-match road trip, the Wolf Pack (0-4) was only able to pick up three wins in the loss to the Cougars (8-2). The lone singles victory of the day came from Emma Verberne, as she powered past Ksenia Googe in straight sets 6-1, 6-3.
"The day started off close," head coach Guillaume Tonelli said. "We were right there in a lot of close matches but they just slipped away. We need to come out strong tomorrow to finish the road trip."
The Pack notched two doubles victories, one from the team of Verberne and Michelle Okhremchuk, as they defeated the pair of Liudmila Vasilieva and Elizaveta Luzina. The doubles point-securing victory came from the team of Sophie Stevens and Juliette Legendre, as they held on for the nailbiter over the team of Charlotte Koning and Andjela Kankaras by a score of 9-7.
The Wolf Pack is in action again tomorrow Montana at 9 P.M.
