FORT WORTH, Texas - The No. 22 TCU women's tennis team downed Colorado State 7-0 Sunday afternoon at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center to conclude its three-match Mountain West Conference series. For the weekend, the Frogs did not surrender a single match as they improved to 11-5 overall and 3-0 in MWC play.
"I think our focus is really good and we are really hungry to prove ourselves," stated TCU head coach Dave Borelli "I was very pleased. It was very windy today and the kids could have been flat but they were really up for today's match. The attitude of these kids is so wonderful."
Sophomores Nicole Leimbach and Kewa Nichols cruised to an 8-1 victory over Jasmin Singh and Sarah Seltsam at No. 3 to record the first victory of the match.
