BERKELEY, Calif. ---The Fresno State women's tennis team won 3-of-4 doubles matches over Cal Poly on day two of the California Winter Invite at the Hellman Tennis Complex in Berkeley, Calif.
"I think we improved a lot in doubles today, we did the right things and really looked good," said Fresno State head coach Ryan Stotland. "I'm excited to see how we do in doubles tomorrow as well."
The Bulldogs began day two of the tournament with three doubles victories over Cal Poly.
Fresno State then went on to grab two singles victories over No. 37 St. Mary's. Rana Sheriff Ahmed came from behind to defeat Danielle Flores 4-6 6-4 1-0(6). Junior Aishwarya Agrawal also won her singles match over Parminder Kaur in straight sets, 7-5;6-3.
"Our energy in singles was a lot better, we just need to make sure that we come out and take care of what we need to do," added Stotland. "We need to learn how to close when we are up, that is the next step."
Fresno State is set to face Cal Poly in singles tomorrow at 10 a.m. before taking on Cal in doubles at 12:30 p.m. at the Hellman Tennis Complex on the final day of the California Winter Invite.
