Oct. 19, 2011
SAN DIEGO -
The Aztecs are back in action for the second time this fall after competing at their own SDSU Fall Classic I back on Sept. 30-Oct. 2. In the season-opening event, San Diego State claimed the top doubles championship and a singles title.
Entering regional action, SDSU will take a pair of nationally ranked duos into the tournament. Alicia Aguilar and Julia Wais currently own a No. 47 ranking, while the tandem of Sierra Ellison and Roxanne Ellison hold down the 59th position. Aguilar and Wais, who won the Fall Classic I title, are 2-1 this season and handed Ellison-Ellison (2-1) their only loss in the early going, which was in the aforementioned doubles final.
Sophomore Laura Antonana Iriarte is 3-0 so far after claiming the singles crown three weekends ago. Senior Emma Cioffi and freshman Kristin Buth, meanwhile, both carry 2-1 records into this week's action.
