Florida State’s women’s tennis team is off to a positive start as they win 15 out of 18 matches on Friday at the San Diego State Fall Tennis Classic held at the Aztec Tennis Complex in California.
“The girls are composed and competing incredibly well,” Head Coach Jennifer Hyde said. “Winning 15 out of 18 matches is a huge way to start at the first competition of the season.”
The Seminoles advance junior Tapiwa Marobela (Gaborone, Botswana), senior Nicola Slater (Ayr, Scotland), freshman Jessica Wente (Whitehouse, TX), sophomore Ania Rynarzewska (Inowroclaw, Poland), and freshman Lauren Macfarlane (Ogden, UT) in the singles’ championship bracket, while sophomore Suzi Mansour (Greenacres, FL) moves on in the singles’ consolation bracket.
“This was the first day of college competition for freshmen Wente and Macfarlane,” Coach Hyde stated. “Their performance says a lot about what they’ll bring to the team this season.”
In doubles action, Florida State teams Foley and Wente, Macfarlane and Slater, Mansour and Rynarzewska finished the day undefeated in the flight one bracket. FSU’s Marobela who was paired up with San Diego State’s Yuki Hagiwara also advanced in the flight two doubles bracket.
Play resumes on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. EST as the Seminoles continue to play towards the championship.
