MEMPHIS, Tenn. -
Two Arizona women’s tennis players posted wins on Sunday to give the Wildcats a successful performance at the Memphis Invitational on Sunday in Memphis, Tenn.
In doubles play, senior Natasha Marks (Nottingham, England) teamed up with sophomore Kim Stubbe (Mol, Belgium) to defeat Tulsa’s Davidson and Enrique, but the duo fell to Alabama’s McLane and Foehse in the final round.
“The Cats did a great job today,” Arizona head coach Vicky Maes said. “We obviously were happy to have a finalist in both singles and doubles, but we saw improved tennis from everyone and that was a great way to finish the tournament.”
Stubbe fell in the final singles round to Memphis’ Courtney Collins, but had a successful showing at the tournament with an overall record of 3-1.
“Kim’s effort was terrific,” Maes said. “She hadn't played a match since early summer and yet it looked like she hadn't skipped a beat. What a tough kid she is.”
The Wildcats will take a break before kicking off their spring season on Jan. 21 to host UC Santa Barbara.
