The UC Davis doubles team of senior Randi Schuler and junior Desiree Stone was the lone Aggie duo to advance to quarterfinal play on Saturday at the 14-team Cal Nike Invitational in Berkeley, Calif.
Schuler and Stone fell 8-6 to the pair of Laila Abdala and Ali Van Horne from Arizona State. Abdala and Van Horne jumped out to a 4-0 lead before letting the Aggies crawl to within one set, 7-6, but put Schuler and Stone away in the next set for the victory.
Schuler and Stone had advanced to the quarterfinal round with an 8-4 victory on Friday over Luba Schifris and Milaca Zivanovic of Sacramento State.
The Aggies next compete at the St. Mary’s Invitational in Moraga, Calif. The four-day tournament begins Oct. 10.
