WOMEN’S TENNIS OPENS FALL SEASON AT CAL NIKE INVITATIONAL

BERKELEY, Calif. - The Sacramento State women's tennis squad opened up its fall season over the weekend with matches on Friday and Saturday at the Cal Nike Invitational Tournament.

Eight Hornets participated in the tournament with two seniors (Sophie Lohscheidt and Katharina Knoebl) and two sophomores (Olivia Boija and Jennifer Nguyen) leading the way. Four Hornet freshmen (Alina Soltanici, Deimante Bulatovaite, Emily McColl and Andie Mouzes) made their collegiate debuts over the weekend.

Lohscheidt had a strong tournament, making it all the way to the quarterfinals in the Gold Singles bracket before losing to Alice Duranteau of California. Bulatovaite and Soltanici also shined by advancing to the semifinals in the White Doubles before losing to a pair of Saint Mary's players.

In all, the Hornets totaled eight singles wins and two doubles wins in their first fall tournament. See full Sacramento State results below.
