FRESNO, Calif. -- Five of Sacramento State's eight players competed over the weekend at the Bulldog Fall Classic at Spalding G. Wathen Tennis Center.
The tournament was the second of four fall events Sacramento State will compete, including the ITA Northwest Regionals at Stanford on Oct. 25.
In Fresno, the Hornets competed senior Hermont Legaspi, junior Michael Vizcarra and freshmen Elliot Arnarp, Anton De La Puente and Carlos Rodriguez. Legaspi is the only returner as Vizcarra is a transfer from American River College, and the other three are true freshmen.
The tournament was highlighted by the doubles team of Rodriguez and De La Puente reaching the championship match of the Flight B draw before falling. During their run, the tandem defeated doubles teams from UC Davis and Saint Mary's.
