OGDEN, Utah -- The Weber State women's tennis team closed out the 2012 season on a high note on Monday afternoon as the Wildcats rolled to a 6-1 win over Big Sky-rival Idaho State at Edman Courts.
The Wildcats (2-21 overall; 2-7 Big Sky) took the doubles point to open the day, behind wins at the No. 1 and 3 matches. Brittiny Moore, the lone Wildcat senior, teamed with Ashley Tanner at No. 1 for an 8-5 win over Katharina Marsela and Laura Porras. That win gave WSU the point after Thais Kurer and Carly Lloyd had taken down Zamira Vasquez and Rachel Ryan 8-2 at No. 3.
In singles play, Annika Karlsen continued her hot play with a 6-1, 6-0 rout of Ryan in the No. 6 match to give WSU a 2-0 lead. Shortly thereafter, Moore wrapped up her collegiate career with a perfect day, adding a 6-1, 6-4 singles win over Marsela to her doubles win.
Thais Kurer defeated Rilee Moorhead 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 in the No. 4 match, and Ashley Tanner downed Porras 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 for a pair of three set victories.
Michelle Warwick wrapped up the day, defeating Vazquez 6-4, 6-3 in the No. 5 match.
"This was a good way for us to end the year," said WSU head coach Jonas Ehrlin. "The girls really played well today. It is nice to see Brittiny finish up with a couple of wins, and it's nice to give the girls something to celebrate, so that they can end the season feeling good.
"We've played some really good tennis as the year wound down, and really could have ended up winning as many as four of our last five matches. They should be proud of themselves in that they kept fighting throughout the year. Hopefully, we can carry a little momentum into the offseason and into next year."
