BOULDER-Freshman Winde Janssens went 2-0 to lead the University of Colorado women's tennis team during its second day of the CU Invitational Saturday at the South Campus tennis courts.  

Colorado won three matches overall, each being brought in by freshmen. The team's two wins during singles play were by freshmen Kristina Schleich and Janssens. Janssens took the momentum from her victory into doubles play as she paired with another freshman, Carla Manzi Tenorio and earned CU's only doubles victory of the afternoon.   

Schleich earned her first career victory after defeating NMSU junior Manon Sylvain, 6-1, 6-2.

Janssens won both of her singles matches yesterday and continued in that style as she beat Denver's Caroline Schnell, 6-0, 6-2.

"We are working hard but not exactly peaking right now, but we are seeing what we need to work on," said head coach Nicole Kenneally.

Colorado went 2-1 in doubles play with Janssens and Manzi Tenorio earning their third doubles victory this weekend. The freshmen duo beat New Mexico State's Ginet Pinero and Isabela Kulaif, 9-8 (5). They will advance to the final round of doubles play tomorrow.

"It was a great victory for two freshmen," said Kenneally. "There is definitely room to improve, but they have great energy and mesh well together. I am happy with that performance."

The Buffs will return to the CU South Campus tennis courts tomorrow morning to wrap up the third and final day of the CU Invitational. Singles competition will begin at 9 a.m.
