STANFORD, Calif. ---The Fresno State women’s tennis team finished its final day of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Northwest Regional at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium on Sunday.

“We competed hard and we have some things to work on but we had a good tournament and I think we learned a lot,” said Fresno State head coach Ryan Stotland. “That is what this season is all about.”

After winning nine matches on day one of competition, the Bulldogs went on to grab three victories on day two.

Claire Yang won her singles match in the consolation round and then paired with Anne Susdorf to win their doubles match in the round of 32. Susdorf and Yang then fell in the round of 16 to California’s Klara Fabikova and Maegan Manasse (8-2). Sophie and Anneka Watts also won their doubles consolation match over Gergana Boncheva and Iveta Masarova of Pacific (8-7(4)).

On the final day of competition Fresno State had four singles victories in the consolation singles round of 64 to conclude the tournament. Sofya Malysheva, Anne Susdorf, Sophie Watts and Anneka Watts all won their respected matches to finish completion on Sunday.
