The University of Wyoming women's tennis team lost its regular-season finale to Colorado State on Saturday with a disappointing 4-2 final at the UW Tennis Complex in Laramie.
Seniors Tessa van Der Ploeg and Elisa Koonik went out swinging and provided the Cowgirls' only wins. Van Der Ploeg won her match at No. 1 singles 6-4, 6-1 and Koonik clinched her No. 2 singles victory by 6-4, 6-4 margins. The duo also won together at No. 1 doubles.
But the rival Rams proved to be too much, winning three singles matches and the other two doubles matches to clinch victory. Wyoming's Ana Royo and Colorado State's Priscilla Palmero's No. 4 singles match was abandoned in the third set.
The Cowgirls now prepare for the 2019 Mountain West Championships, scheduled to begin on Wednesday in San Diego.
