STOCKTON, Calif. -- Six of Sacramento State's eight players competed over the weekend at the Pacific Invitational at the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center. The tournament marked the final fall competition for the Hornets.

Senior Hermont Legaspi, junior Michael Vizcarra, sophomore Abdulaziz Albayouk, and freshmen Elliot Arnarp, Anton De La Puente and Carlos Rodriguez each competed at the three-day event. Sacramento State's other two players on the roster - senior Louis Chabut and sophomore Josh Snowdon-Poole - did not play because of injury.

Overall, Sacramento State combined for 11 singles wins as all six Hornets picked up at least one victory. That included three wins for Legaspi, and two each for De La Puente, Arnarp and Vizcarra.

In doubles play, the Hornets' teams of De La Puente/Rodriguez, Legaspi/Vizcarra, and Albayouk/Arnarp each won at least one match.
