Women’s tennis finishes play at Brother AI Invitational

The OLLU women’s tennis team opened the fall season by participating in the Brother AI Invitational at St. Mary’s University. The tournament ran from Sept. 1-3 and seven players competed for the Saints.

Head Coach Dave Watts said, “I thought our women had a great weekend. Lucia Popluharova had a big third set tiebreak win over a tough opponent from St. Mary’s University. She outlasted a tough opponent from Trinity University who eventually retired. Ana Ossio was also very impressive. She played a great match against a tough Trinity opponent but came up short. She made an incredible comeback on Sunday, being down a set and 0-3. Valerie Navarro-Cavazos and Sofia Gonzalez had a big win over Western New Mexico University. I was very impressed with how our women competed this weekend.”
