LINCOLN – The University of Colorado women’s tennis team defeated St. Louis University, 6-1 Saturday afternoon in Lincoln, Nebraska.  The Buffaloes have now won four of their last five matches, dating back to February 11, when they handed Colorado State a 6-1 loss. Over that time period, CU has outscored their opponents 26-9.

The Buffs gained a quick advantage by sweeping the doubles-point. Senior Ania Anuszkiewicz and freshman Ashley Tiefel began the day by defeating Madeline Jolly and Brooke Urzendowski, 8-0. Anuszkiewicz and Tiefel are now 2-0 on the season when playing together at the doubles position.

“Doubles set the tone as we entered the singles play,” said CU head coach Nicole Kenneally. “We had a great outing today, and solid performances from everyone.”

Colorado's Sophomore duo of Winde Janssens and Carla Manzi Tenorio clinched the doubles point by defeating Stephanie Hollis and Mia Elmore, 8-5. To complete the sweep, sophomore Kristina Schleich and freshman Julyette Steur defeated Jenny Nalepa and Maria Toro Moreno, 8-4. This was only the third time all season that the Buffaloes have won at all three doubles positions, previously accomplishing the feat against in-state rivals, Colorado State and Northern Colorado.

Julyette Steur continued the momentum gained from the doubles play by defeating Mia Elmore 6-2, 6-1. Carla Manzi Tenorio followed suit, also earning a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Urzendowski. The victories improved both Steur, and Manzi Tenorio’s spring records to 7-2, respectively, leading the team in spring match wins.

The only loss of the day came when senior Ania Anuszkiewicz fell 3-6, 3-6 to St. Louis’ Maria Toro Moreno. Colorado responded, however, clinching the match with Kristina Schleich’s 6-3, 6-1 victory over Jenny Nalepa.

Colorado earned the final two points of the day, courtesy of Winde Janssens and Ashley Tiefel. First, Janssens defeated Hollis 6-2, 7-5 then Tiefel handled Jolly 6-3, 6-1, putting an end to the match and leaving the Buffs satisfied half-way through the Nebraska road-trip.

This was the first-ever meeting between the two schools as Colorado now leads the all-time series 1-0. The Buffaloes will play again Sunday in Lincoln against the No. 36 nationally ranked Cornhuskers.
