WTEN | Gaels to Host Saint Mary's Invitational This Week

Oct. 3, 2017

MORAGA, Calif. — The Saint Mary's women's tennis team returns home this week, as the Gaels will host the annual Saint Mary's Invitational at the Timothy Korth Tennis Complex this Friday to Sunday, Oct. 6-8.


The Gaels will host a 12-team field that includes strong competition from the west coast. The field will host players from San Francisco, Sonoma State, Eastern Washington, UC Davis, California, UC Santa Barbara, Sacramento State, Fresno State, Pacific, Santa Clara and San Jose State.

The Gaels found much success in last week's season opener at the Cal Invitational. In the Gold Flight Doubles final, SMC went perfect and had both doubles teams in the championship. Seniors Kareena Manji and Vanessa Nommensen fell just short to the newcomers, Mariia Kozyreva and Aubane Ville in the championship match, 8-6.

Nommensen highlighted singles play for the Gaels, as the senior advanced to the Gold Flight semifinals.

In her first year, Kozyreva displayed fierce groundstrokes and energy en route to two epic singles victories. The freshman grinded out in both matches, and won each contest in the third set.


The Saint Mary's women's tennis team can now be followed on Twitter. For all the latest news, photos and videos, follow the Gaels on @SMC_WTennis for both Twitter and Instagram.
