WTEN | Kozyreva Finishes Runner-Up at SMC Invitational

Oct. 8, 2017

MORAGA, Calif. -- In the third and final day of the Saint Mary's Invitational, Mariia Kozyreva picked up a win in the semifinals before being edged in the final round in three sets.

Kozyreva finished the tournament 4-1 in singles action, including three wins by straight sets, and 2-1 in doubles while paired with Aubane Ville. The freshman is off to a hot start in her collegiate career with strong performances in both of the Gaels' tournaments this fall. At the Cal Invitational last week, Kozyreva was runner-up in her singles consolation round bracket and won her doubles bracket while paired with Ville.

THOUGHTS FROM Simon Harston

  • "Masha is a gem. There are some edges that need to be polished but she has the game, and more importantly the fighting attitude we want in a Gael."
  • "She has made a great start to her college career but this a long way from the heights she could reach. I am sure there will be a lot more to come from her this year."
