MORAGA - The California women's tennis team left the Saint Mary's Invitational with one tournament win, as the team of freshman Nina Henkel and junior Daron Moore won the doubles tournament, Sunday at the Korth Tennis Complex. The Golden Bear tandem knocked off Saint Mary's pairs in the semifinals and the finals.

In the semifinals, Henkel and Moore beat Femike and Nienke Strijbis, 8-5. The Bears got the job done much more convincingly in the finals, defeating Aude Lambert and Jessia Hoath, 8-1.
