April 18, 2021 (Fort Collins, Colo.) - The San Diego State women’s tennis team stumbled in Mountain West conference dual-match play Sunday, falling victim to a sweep by the Wyoming Cowgirls in a neutral-site match at the CSU Tennis Complex in Fort Collins, Colo.

The lone Aztec duo to record a win Sunday was junior Alicia Melosch and senior Nnena Nadozie, who brought home a No. 1 doubles match win with a 6-1 defeat of Wyoming’s Brink/Oreshkina. Unfortunately, the Scarlet and Black were unable to find a rhythm in doubles play and fell on courts two and three. Regina Pitts and sophomore Cécile Morin fell 6-2 to the Cowgirls’ Fernandez/Zehender in No. 2 doubles action and senior Abbie Mulbarger and freshman Alexandria Von Tersch Pohrer fell by the same score on court three to UW’s Krause/Kaftanova.


The Cowgirls used the momentum gained in doubles play to sweep singles action, earning victories on courts three, four and five to bring home the dual-match win. Fernandez defeated Morin 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 on court three, Brink topped Melosch 6-3, 6-3 on court four and Wyoming’s Malinak took home a 6-0, 6-2 win on court five.



San Diego State competes in one more weekend of Mountain West conference dual-match play, traveling to Las Vegas, Nev. to take on UNLV and San José State. The match with the Spartans is scheduled for a 12 p.m. start on April 24, while the Aztecs’ season finale with the Rebels is set for 10 a.m. on April 25.
