LINCOLN, Neb. On the road at Big 12 Conference rival Nebraska, the Kansas State women’s tennis team was shut out, 7-0, Saturday afternoon at the Woods Tennis Center.
Searching for their second league victory of the season, the Cornhuskers came out on top by sweeping singles and doubles play from the Wildcats. All but the No. 1 doubles match was won by Nebraska (12-6, 2-4), as K-State’s top duo of Maria Rosenberg and Paulina Castillejos downed NU’s Leslie Harvey and Rose Ketmayura, 8-1, to improve their spring record to 12-4.
“We played exceptionally well at No. 1 doubles and we were in a very good position at No. 2 doubles (being up 6-3), but did not get another game, which really put us in a difficult position going into singles,” Head Coach Steve Bietau said. “We played reasonably well at singles, but they (Nebraska) made it very difficult for us and we were not able to do anything about that today.”
Up next, K-State (5-11, 1-7) hosts No. 44 Baylor in its last home dual match of the season on Sunday, April 11 at 1 p.m. (CT). Seniors Paulina Castillejos and Hayley McIver will be honored prior to competition against the Bears. All matches to be played at the Washburn Tennis Facility, unless weather permits and play is moved indoors to Ahearn Field House.
