BOULDER – Two Buffaloes earned wins in straight sets, but it wasn’t enough for the No. 75 University of Colorado tennis team to take down No. 45 Washington, as they fell 5-2 on Sunday at the CU South Campus Tennis Complex.

“This is just another example of how tough the Pac-12 is,” CU head coach Nicole Kenneally said. “Washington came in and competed hard. I think we gave our best effort today. We have 10 days before our next match to regroup a little bit and get ready.”

CU falls to 7-12 overall, 2-7 Pac-12 Conference in just its second match playing as a ranked team this season. Washington, the seventh team the Buffs have faced this season that is ranked and boasts at least one ranked player or doubles team, improves to 11-9, 3-6 Pac-12 after falling to Utah on Friday.

The Buffs came out with a statement, with Julyette Steur and Erin Sanders knocking off No. 71 Douglas-Miron/Shimizu.

On a windy day that had Winde Janssens out of the singles lineup, freshman Dhany Quevedo stepped up in the No. 2 position, and sophomore Julyette Steur extended her Pac-12 winning streak to three.

“Obviously I’m really happy and proud for Dhany for getting a Pac-12 win and at No. 2 singles at that,” Kenneally said. “It’s fantastic. And Julyette continues to play strong.”

After Steur took down Washington State’s second winningest player in three sets on Friday, she had no problem getting another big win at the No. 1 singles position. Steur defeated Andjela Nemcevic 6-2, 6-2 for her 11th win of the spring and her third straight in the Pac-12.

Quevedo stood out against Elianne Douglas-Miron, winning key break points to take the match 6-4, 6-3. The victory was the 10th of her young career and her second in the Pac-12, having defeated Arizona State’s Leighann Sahagun in three sets.

Following an extended break, the Buffs conclude the regular season against Utah at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 20 at the CU South Campus Tennis Complex unless weather pushes play inside. The Buffs then head to the Pac-12 Championships in Ojai, Calif. from April 25-28.
