Peek, Zauere, Edwards Earn Win In Zags Loss To Broncos
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Kylie Peek earned her 17th singles win of the season but the Gonzaga University women's tennis team couldn't collect more points as Santa Clara University beat the Bulldogs 6-1 in a West Coast Conference match Saturday.
After the Broncos (10-10, 3-4 WCC) clinched a win at No. 3 doubles to start the day, the senior-freshman combo of Kristina Zauere and Katie Edwards helped the Bulldogs (9-10, 1-6 WCC) even the score with an 8-6 win over Katie Le and Jessica Agra on court one. But the Bulldogs lost the doubles point after the Broncos picked up a win on court two.
Peek earned the Bulldogs only point by defeating Kacie Wagner 6-4, 6-1 at No. 4 singles. Several Bulldogs also played close sets in their singles match. Zauere came close to winning the first set at the No. 2 spot, but Alex Zaniewski held on to win 7-6 (5), 6-2. Edwards also played a close first set, but Kelly Lamble went on to win the No. 3 singles matchup 7-6 (3), 6-2.
The Bulldogs Bay Area tour continues as they will drive across the Peninsula to face the University of San Francisco in the regular-season finale Sunday at 11 a.m.
