The top-seeded San Diego State women's tennis team earned its first win the Mountain West Championships on Friday, defeating No. 9 Colorado State, 4-0. The Aztecs took the doubles point to lead early and quickly finished off the Rams by notching the three necessary points in singles play to claim the match. SDSU now owns a 21-4 overall record and the 39th spot in the ITA rankings.
San Diego State opened play at the league championships with doubles play against Colorado State. On court No. 3, Alicia Aguilar and Isabelle Hoorn topped Mollie Cooper and Abby Stevens, 8-4. Julia Wais and Kristin Buth put the Aztecs on the board after clinching the doubles point by downing Natalie Heffron and Adriana Wojakowska, 8-5, in second doubles. With the point in hand, play on court No. 1 was left unfinished.
In singles action, Kristin Buth would post the second point for SDSU after dismissing Wojakowska on court No. 4. Recent all-Mountain West singles honoree, Aguilar, kept the momentum going for the Aztecs' with a victory in the second slot over Heffron, 6-4, 6-2.
