Looking for a second season of success

POSTED October 2, 2009 11:27 p.m.
The Cal State Stanislaus women’s tennis team has a disadvantage entering this season.
Opponents know what the Warriors are capable of.
Last season, they returned for the first time to Division II women’s tennis after a long hiatus and had a successful run while boasting the best player in the country — in Verena Preikschas, the 2009 California Collegiate Athletic Association Most Valuable Player.
Preikschas is once again the face of Stanislaus women’s tennis, considering the sophomore is seeded No. 3 behind Yuan Jia and Jenny Chin of BYU Hawaii. Preikschas has support from Vanesa Reibstein, Heather Cotter, Brianna McClintock, Lexy Harrington and Katie Eng, the reigning CCAA Freshman of the Year.
The Warriors have played two days at the Wilson/ITA Regional Championship in Pomona, with the final matches taking place today.

Schrier takes fourth at invitational

Sophomore Teddy Schrier is looking much like the Cal State Stanislaus golfer he was last season, one that helped the Warriors to a strong finish at the D-II National Championship. He hasn’t changed much. Perhaps, he’s gotten better.
It showed with his fourth-place finish at the Western Washington Invitational in Bellingham, Wash., as he fired a 69 on Tuesday on the final day.
That helped the Warriors take sixth in the team standings in a tournament of 14 teams from across the country. Their three-round total was 868.
“Teddy worked hard this summer,” Stanislaus coach John Cook said. “He was consistent for two days and is playing well this early in the season.”
