Zags Remain Unbeaten at Gonzaga Invite
Nov. 4, 2017
SPOKANE, Wash.--The Gonzaga women's tennis team continued to dominate its own Gonzaga Invite Saturday, adding on 10 more total wins inside The Stevens Center.
Like on day one of the tournament, Gonzaga won seven singles matches and three doubles contests Saturday. Senior Alex Bourguignon won her weekend singles debut, downing Marquette's Lesley Foe 6-3, 6-2. Freshman Ashleigh Jacobs also played her first singles match of the weekend, beating Isabella Franks 6-1, 7-5.
The other five Zags in singles play each picked up their second win of the weekend. Graciela Rosas took the tournament lead with a 6-4, 6-1 win. The junior from Mexicali, Mexico, has won 80 percent of her singles games on the weekend, more than anyone else with multiple victories. The player with the highest game win percentage will take home the Gonzaga Invite crown. Sophie Whittle has the second-highest win percentage after a 6-3, 7-5 win Saturday, and Haruna Tsuruta is third after her 6-4, 6-3 victory.
In doubles play, Garley and Ketels teamed up for a 6-3 win over a pair from Montana State, as did Rosas and Whittle. Bourguignon and Tsuruta clinched the 10-win day with a 6-4 victory over the Bobcats' Enni Zander and Angelina Philippova.
Gonzaga will wrap up both the tournament and the fall season on Sunday, Nov. 5. Day three of the Gonzaga Invitational will begin at 8:00 a.m., once again at The Stevens Center.
