SAN DIEGO — The Sacramento State women's tennis team wrapped up its Southern California road trip with a 4-3 loss at No. 56 San Diego State on Thursday afternoon.
With the match tied 3-3, SDSU (10-4) earned a 6-2, 7-5 victory from Kristin Buth over Olivia Boija at No. 4 to win the match.
The day began with San Diego State squeaking out a victory in doubles play. SDSU won at No. 2, 8-2, before the Nos. 1 and 3 doubles matches went into tie-breakers. At No. 1, Michala Cassanova and Laura Antonana Iriarte defeated Rebeca Delgado and Boija, 9-8 (5). Alicia Aguillar and Isabelle Horn beat Sophie Lohscheidt and Andrea Gomez Carus, 9-7, at No. 3.
The Aztecs' lead stretched to 2-0 early in singles play when Lohscheidt was forced to retire from her No. 3 singles match. From that point, Sacramento State won the next three matches to take the lead. Cassanova made it 3-0 in favor of SDSU after she defeated Siobhan Ryan-Bovey, 6-2, 6-3, at No. 6.
From that point, the Hornets won the next three matches to tie the contest at 3-3. Katharina Knoebl started the run with a 6-2, 6-4, win at No. 5. Jennifer Nguyen kept the Hornets alive behind a 6-4, 6-1, victory at No. 3. Delgado tied the match after with a win at No. 1 over Julia Wais, 6-3, 6-3.
