Women's Tennis Closes Regular Season At Colorado

Lamoreaux has earned six of hers from court five and the other two from court six. Hung also leads the squad with eight doubles wins, while Goncharova has collected seven.
Colorado is 8-11 on the year, which includes a pair of Pac-12 wins over Washington State and then-No. 12-ranked California. Other key wins for the Buffs have come over BYU and Utah State.

Colorado is led by Megan Forster and Maria Campos, who both have tabbed double-digit singles wins on the year. Forster has posted an 11-5 record primarily between courts three and four, while Campos is 10-7 across courts two through six. No. 117-ranked Sara Nayar plays in the top spot for the Buffs and has eight dual wins.
LAST TIME OUT
Utah fell last weekend to the pair of Arizona schools as the regular season began to wind down. The Utes fell to then No. 36 Arizona State with Lindsay Hung picking up her first set before the match went unfinished as three Utes fell to have the match clinched. Utah played a closer match against Arizona and picked up the doubles point to get the day started. Anastasia Goncharova earned a win on court four to push the lead to 2-1, but Arizona rallied and took the next three singles matches to clinch the match. Hung was battling in a third set before her match was called off.
Utah will head to the Pac-12 Championships beginning next Friday, Apr. 23, and running through Saturday, Apr. 26. The conference championships will take place at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, Calif.
