The University of Colorado women's tennis team fell 4-1 to another top-10 opponent in Stanford here Sunday afternoon at the CU South Campus Courts.
CU falls to 9-8 overall and 1-5 in Pac-12 Conference play, while Stanford improved to 14-1 (6-0 Pac-12). The 2016 NCAA reigning champions now own a 10-match winning streak.
Nuria Ormeño Ruiz had a stellar day powering past No. 51 ranked Caroline Doyle of Stanford. Ormeño Ruiz's first set was a quick one downing Doyle 6-0. The second set was a little more of a battle for Ormeño Ruiz but she pushed back and settled in to get the 6-4 set and match victory. This is Ormeño Ruiz's second Pac-12 win this season and first victory over Stanford's No. 1 singles player.
"Caroline Doyle has been a part of at least one National Championship team, as she was on the court a year ago when they won. And, Nuria has been there in nearly every single match she has played her whole career. So, for her to get the satisfaction of that win today against a Stanford Cardinal is fantastic. I am really happy and proud of her," CU coach Nicole Kenneally said.
CU will hit the road next week and head to Los Angeles, Calif. to face UCLA and USC. The Buffs will take on UCLA on Friday April 7 at 2:30 p.m. and then on Saturday face off against USC at 1 p.m.
