SDSU Aztec Women’s Team Wins Again

Comprehensive training and focus paid off for San Diego State University’s Aztecs. The women’s tennis team did not lose a set. They were victorious on March 11, 2020 against Youngstown State. This was their second consecutive dual match victory. The score was 7 to 0 in the Aztec’s favor. The match took place on home soil at the Aztec Tennis Center.

It just goes to show that you can’t count out the youngest players. Freshman, Julia Jordan and junior Tamara Arnold posted a 6 to 0 shut out against Youngstown State’s Moraleja and Zagar. Youngstown’s Penguins, Esteo and Barboza were no match for junior Nnena Nadozie and freshman Cecile Morin. They secured the first point of the match for the formidable Aztecs. The final score was 7 to 6 on the third court.

The wins kept coming for the Aztecs as Rimoldi Godoy earned the Scarlet and Black’s second point of the day resulting in a 6 to 1, 1 to 0 (retired) victory over Youngstown State’s Moraleja on the fifth court. Junior player Alicia Melosch was up next with a 6 to 0 and 6 to 3 topping of third-seeded Zagar. Arnold continued with the pummeling when she secured the match win in favor of the Aztecs. She scored a 6 to 9 and 6 to 4 landslide over the Penguin’s Stanmore on the second court.

Aztec women’s tennis defied the odds by earning big wins from first seed Nadozie who bested Youngstown State’s Teufl by 6 to 4 and 6 to 2. Abbie Mulbarger, junior topped Barboza on the 6th court with a 7 to 6 (9-7) and 6 to 1 decision. Jordan strategically gained the final win of the day with a 7 to 5 and 6 to 0 win on the 4th court. She was the better opponent against Esteo and secured the shutout triumph.

The Aztecs proved the naysayers wrong with their third sweep of the 2020 season on March 11. The last time San Diego State University completed a dual without losing a set was on February 15, 2020. They bested Long Beach State 4 to 0.
