With the help of a combined five wins by the doubles teams Julyette Steur and Erin Sanders, and Winde Janssens and Carla Manzi Tenorio, CU earned the doubles point at Loyola Marymount. While Steur and Sanders won their fourth game straight, Janssens and Tenorio continued an incredible seven-game winning streak for this spring and remain undefeated in doubles play.
The girls dominated in individual play as Julyette Steur, Dhany Quevedo and Mazy Watrous all completed two-set victories. For the first time during her career at CU, freshman Quevedo completed a match without losing a single game. Freshman Watrous earned her first win of the season after defeating Marymount’s Lisa Piller 6-1, 6-0.
Junior Winde Janssens beat Tory Parravi 7-6, 6-4 and continues to keep her record nearly flawless with the exception of one loss in doubles play earlier this spring. Senior Erin Sanders claimed a victory in a tough battle against Miya Jin to advance her career total to 5-5 in three-set matches.
The team will take the next week off before hosting Northern Arizona at the Millennium Hotel Harvest House in Boulder at 10 a.m. on Monday. Following the home match, the Buffs will travel to Laramie to take on the University of Wyoming at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday.
