    BERKELEY, Calif. --- The Fresno State women's tennis team finished day two of the Nike Cal Invite Berkley, Calif., and Rana Sherif Ahmed completed her first day of the ITA Women's All-American Championship in Los Angeles, Calif.

    On the second day of the Nike Cal Invite the Bulldogs dropped all five of their single matches and finished competition with two doubles victories.

    Sophie Watts and Anneka Watts defeated Jennifer Nguyen and Katharina Knoebl of Sacramento, 8-5. Anne Susdorf and Claire Yang also grabbed an 8-5 victory over teammate Sofya Malysheva who paired with Nevada's Monika Magusiak for doubles play.

    "We want to keep getting better and I feel like today we didn't quite take that step," said Fresno State head coach Ryan Stotland. "We are hoping to break through a little bit tomorrow."

    In day one of the Pre-Qualifying Rounds of the ITA Women's All-American Championships Sherif Ahmed defeated Mia King of Georgia in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. Sherif Ahmed then dropped her second match to Jordaan Sanford of Baylor in three sets, 6-2, 2-6, 6-1.

    The Bulldogs conclude the last day of the Nike Cal Invite Sunday morning at 9 a.m. at the Hellman Tennis Complex and Channing Tennis Courts.
