Tucson, Ariz. - The Arizona Wildcats added another win to their record after beating SDSU 4-2 on Saturday, Feb. 5, 2022 at home. The Cats are now 3-0 and gave SDSU their first loss of the spring season.

Freshman Parker Fry and Kayla Wilkins finalized the doubles point for the Cats when they won 6-3 against Regina Pitts and Cecile Morin. 

The points kept coming during singles play. Fry was first off the court after a 6-0, 6-3 sweep against Morin. Ryngler took the third point of the day winning two straight sets 6-1 against Nadozie. Salma Ziouti swept her opponent Tamara Arnold 6-3, 6-0 to secure the win for the Wildcats.
