Nevada in Berkeley to Open 2012-13

Sept. 27, 2012

RENO, Nev. -- The University of Nevada women's tennis team will begin its tournament season with a trip to the Cal-Nike Invitational this weekend, competing from Friday-Sunday in Berkeley, Calif.

Complete draws can be found at the tournament's main page, here.

Two players, Michelle Okhremchuk and Emma Verberne, return to the Wolf Pack women's team after earning all-conference honors last season.

The duo was named second-team all-WAC in doubles competition. 6-1 in dual play and 3-1 in WAC matches, the duo closed the season on a six-match winning streak.

Okhremchuk's 20 overall wins were enough to garner first-team singles honors for the second year in a row. She played out of the No. 1 position in 16 of Nevada's 17 matches during the dual season. She was 10-6 in those matches.

Verberne was tabbed a second-team singles performer for the third consecutive year after an 18-13 overall record. Playing out of the No. 2 position for the majority of the season, she posted a 10-7 record in dual play.

In total, second-year head coach Guillaume Tonelli welcomes two newcomers onto a squad that will return five players from a season ago.

Nevada finished the 2012 season at 6-12 overall, falling to eventual WAC champion Hawai'i in the first round of the conference tournament in Las Cruces, N.M.
