In what was called “by far the best win in CSU doubles history” by women’s tennis head coach Jon Messick, Anne Andersen and Emily Kirchem beat the No. 2 doubles pair in the country in New Mexico on Saturday.
Despite losing the overall match by a score of 6-1, the Rams were able to make a doubles statement by knocking off Iva Gersic and Maja Kovacek, 8-7.
“To beat some of the best players in the country, it shows how close the rest of the team is getting to that level,” Messick said in a press release.
The win was the first over a nationally ranked doubles pair this season.
