Stanislaus women’s tennis finish tourney with heartbreaker

POSTED March 18, 2011 8:39 p.m.
In their third match against national powerhouse programs in as many days, the Cal State Stanislaus Warriors nearly pulled off an upset before falling to No. 7 Hawaii Pacific, 5-4, on Wednesday.
The 21st-ranked Warriors women's tennis team challenged three teams ranked in the top seven this week in Las Vegas to some positive results before ending the trip 0-3.
Wednesday's narrow lost to Hawaii Pacific was a heartbreaker as it was against an in-region opponent in closely contested matches.
Verena Preikschas and Katie Eng won their second doubles match in a row, this time an 8-5 smash over HPU's Zora Vickova and Celina Goetti. The Warrior duo was coming off a win over a pair from the top-ranked Armstrong Atlantic State team on Tuesday.
Vickova and Goetti had beaten the top ranked doubles team in NCAA Division II of Barbora Krtickova and Alida Muller-Wehlau from AASU on Tuesday.
At No. 2 doubles, Vanesa Reibstein and McKenzy Harden were also winners with an 8-5 win over Maria Fagerstrom and Sandra Wikstrom.
Preikschas and Reibstein also earned wins in singles play. Preikschas won her No. 1 single match 6-1, 6-0, to improve to 7-4 on the season. Reibstein won at No. 3 singles, beating Florie Paguay, 7-5, 6-4.
Cal State Stanislaus took on No. 5 West Florida, 7-2, on Monday before losing to three-time defending champion No. 1 Armstrong Atlantic State, 8-1, on Tuesday.
The Warriors’ scheduled home match against Sonoma State today has been postponed to a yet-to-be determined date, as of late Friday.
