The Sonoma State University women’s tennis team lost to the No. 12 seed UC San Diego Tritons on Friday. The Seawolves played a tough game but still were defeated 8-1 and dropped to 13-6 while the Tritons improved to 10-9. 

Sonoma State lost all three doubles matches against UC San Diego. Junior Jensyn Warren and partner Amanda Zuidema fell to UCSD players Ashley Chao and Rebecca Chou in the doubles one match. 

No. 6 Warren came out on top during the singles matches and defeated No. 28 Chao with the scores (6-3, 4-6, 7-5). On Wednesday, Warren was announced as the No. 6 raking in the Division II singles, becoming the highest singles ranking in Sonoma State history thus far. 

“I was very humbled and honored to be named one of the top 10 players in the country,” she said. “I love so much playing for my coaches and teammates, so it truly is an honor and I am very proud of myself for my recent accomplishments.”

The future is limitless for Warren. “I hope to continue with tennis after I graduate and start playing some professional tournaments and see where it takes me. I want to continue all the hard work I have put in thus far into my tennis career and hopefully it will take me somewhere.”

Zuidema came up short against competitor Chou during singles round (6-1, 6-4) and Freshman Carolyn Brooner fell to Alexandra Well in the singles three match scoring (7-6, 6-3).
