The Weatherford College women's tennis team finished their fall slate of tournaments against NCAA Division I competition at the Texan Invite at Tarleton State University over the weekend.
WC's Agathe Vaillant won both matches against two Tarleton players and fellow French countrywomen. Both matches were hard-earned: 2-6, 6-3, 10-8 and 6-4 in the first and 6-4, 6-7 (3), 10-8 in the second.
Lina Brandt picked up one win against a Tarleton competitor (6-3, 5-7, 10-5) and Marija Ristanovic was just points away from two wins, losing in three tight sets to two Tarleton players 6-3, 3-6, 6-10 and 7-5, 5-7, 7-10.
"The team did well and showed some grit," said Alexandra Leatu, WC head coach. "Competing at this level and ending our fall season this way has definitely lit a fire for the girls as we focus on preparing for the spring. They got a taste of winning and fighting for each other, for Weatherford College, and they want to feel that again. They are definitely using this to propel them forward."
