Freshmen come up big for women's tennis at Pac-12 Championships

April 27, 2012


With much of the team sidelined by injuries, the Arizona State women’s tennis players competing in the 2012 Pac-12 Championships had an impressive showing on the first day of competition, Thursday in Ojai, Calif.

Freshmen Leighann Sahagun and Joanna Smith each handily earned victories on the day in the Singles Invitational draw of the tournament. Sahagun blanked Oregon’s Lena Mae Macomson, 6-0, 6-0 in the opening round, while Smith defeated Colorado’s Ashley Tiefel, 6-1, 6-1.

The second round of singles competition was hampered due to inclement weather and will continue tomorrow from the Ojai Valley Country Club.
