To conclude the regular season, the UC Davis women’s tennis team went out in winning fashion as they swept Sacramento State at the Marya Welch Tennis Center on April 19. Prior to the match, the Aggies pursued a three-match winning streak, beating CSUN, Stanislaus State and Portland State. 

The first win of the day against Sac State occurred when fourth-year duo Carly Schwartzberg and Michelle Zelle won 6-4 against Mayya Gorbunova and Lou Baudouin of Sacramento State. Following the first win, fourth-year and third-year sisters Olive and Daisy Maunupau came back from a 4-1 deficit to secure a point for Davis in a tiebreak set 7-6. Additionally, Olive Maunupau continued that streak into her singles match where she took a straight set victory in her last home match as an Aggie.

Another strong performance came from second-year Kaia Wolfe, who won all of her sets after coming back from a mid-season injury. Additionally, first-year Mika Ikemori won an impressive all-set victory against Sac State’s Gorbunova. This became Ikemori’s third consecutive straight singles win and concluded the triumphant celebration for the seniors

Overall, the fourth-years were successfully commemorated for their work on the courts and concluded the season victoriously heading into the Big West Championship tournament. 

In the coming weeks, we will see if Davis can do what it takes to win and bring home the trophy.
