Oregon loses in both doubles matches at Pac-12 tournament
To add to their struggles this women’s tennis season, the Ducks fell in both their doubles matches at the Pac-12 Championships on Friday.
The doubles team made up of sophomores Nia Rose and Alyssa Tobita fell 6-3 to Washington State’s Trang H. Huynh and Victoria Matejevic in the Doubles Championship Bracket. Trang and Matejevic went on to lose in the quarterfinals against USC’s Giuliana Olmos and Gabby Smith.
Juniors Paloma Gomez and Marlou Kluiving, Oregon’s other doubles team in the Doubles Invitational Bracket, lost in the first round to UCLA’s Terri Fleming and Alaina Miller 7-6 (5). Fleming and Miller have made it to the semifinals and are set to play Stanford’s Krista Hardebeck and Caroline Lampl on Saturday.
The Ducks’ four singles players, Kluiving, Tobita, Sangwan and Rose, also lost all their matches on Thursday.
This may be a season the Oregon women’s tennis team will want to forget when it begins to reboot and recover for next season.
