SAN DIEGO -
The San Diego State women's tennis team continued tournament play at the Wilson/ITA West Regional Championships Friday at Barnes Tennis Center. Along with the University of San Diego, SDSU is co-hosting the 16-team tournament.
In doubles action, two Aztec tandems won their matches to advance to the round of 16. Holly Bagshaw and Julia Trunk teamed up to defeat Roxanne Plata and Erynne Oki of UC Riverside, 8-4, while Roxanne and Sierra Ellison handed Arizona's Jane Huh and Danielle Steinberg an 8-3 loss. Both duos will continue their title run tomorrow at 8:30 a.m.
In singles action, Bagshaw moved on to the round of 16 with a hard-fought 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 victory over Ariane Masschelein of Arizona, but the Potters Bar, England, native was unable to make it to the quarterfinals as she dropped a 6-0, 6-2 decision to USC's No. 2 seed Amanda Fink. In other main draw matches, both Trunk and Roxanne Ellison fell in straight sets to seeded opponents.
Over in the consolation bracket, Colman won her two matches to advance to the round of 16. The Los Angeles, Calif., native opened the day with a 6-1, 6-1, triumph over Loyola Marymount's Jasmine Heckel, before outlasting Oki (UCR), 6-4, 5-7, 10-6.
Milana Yusupov also won her first consolation match, cruising to a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Cal State Fullerton's Shaghig Injejikian, but dropped a tough 6-4, 6-7, 10-8 decision to Anna Maskaljun later in the day.
