The University of Wyoming women's tennis team wrapped up a busy weekend of competition Sunday at the Louisville Invitational in Louisville, Ky.

In A bracket action the Cowgirls were paced by junior Sofi Espinosa. Espinosa was 3-2, including two three-set matches. Also in the A bracket was freshman Jenny Bowman, who went 1-2 on the weekend.

Senior Angela Dossetor was 1-2 in the B bracket and freshman Stacy Kneese was 2-1. Kneese was victorious in two three-set matches before falling in another three-setter. Wyoming also had two individuals in the C bracket, where sophomore Paulina del Monte went 2-2 and freshman Toni Terhaar was 0-2.

The Cowgirls performed well in doubles action as well. In the B bracket, both doubles teams were 2-1. The teams of del Monte-Santi and Hancock-Terhaar both looked strong before falling in close matches. In doubles A bracket action, the team of Dossetor-Espinosa was 1-1 while the team of Bowman-Kneese went 0-2.

"This was our best performance of the fall season," said Wyoming head coach Pam Davis. "It was nice to end the fall on a positive note, and it came against a very difficult field. I'm very happy and proud of the way we competed. I was impressed with the girls and we are becoming more of a team each time out.

"We learned a lot about ourselves this weekend," said Davis. "We're still looking for the right combinations in our doubles teams, but overall I think the girls are getting to a point where they are learning each other's games better. We now have the winter to practice and try to put the right doubles partners together for the spring season."

There is one remaining competition this fall season for Wyoming. The Central Regional will be held Nov. 1-5 in Omaha, Neb. The competitors haven't been announced, and the Cowgirls must wait to hear who has been selected to play.
