    The season is now done for the tennis team, and in spite of losing their #1 player (she's decided to transfer) right before conference play started, looks like the Buffs are making steps forward against the many top teams they have to play during the year. Good luck to the team in the off-season, and hope they continue to improve and get stronger, and best of wishes to senior Alex Aiello in all her future endeavors!

    Buffs Finish Best Day Ever At Pac-12 Championships

    OJAI, Calif. - For the first time in Colorado tennis history, two players advanced to the second round of the Pac-12 Championships on Thursday in Ojai, Calif.

    "As time progresses, our competitiveness increases," head coach Nicole Kenneally said. "We had our opportunities today in several matches. As we continue to gain more experience, learn more about ourselves, those deuce points are going to start turning our way. It was a good first day."

    Alex Aiello defeated Southern California's Paige Keating 6-2, 6-2 in the Round of 32 in the Invitational Draw. Kyra Wojcik also won her first-round match 6-4, 6-4 over Luisa Gerstner Da Rosa from Utah.

    Both players fell in the Round of 16 in hard-fought battles. Wojcik lost to USC's Gabby Smith 7-5, 6-2.

    "I thought Kyra really battled well against Smith," Kenneally said. "She was down 5-2 in the first set and it was a really gallivanting effort to get back into it."

    Aiello lost 6-1, 6-0 to California's Karla Popovic.

    Daniel and Ormeño Ruiz End Season With Wins At Pac-12 Championships

    OJAI, Calif. - Colorado wrapped up the 2015-16 season on Friday at the Pac-12 Championships in Ojai, Calif.

    The Buffaloes went 2-2 in singles matches after dropping a pair of tough doubles matches in the morning to be eliminated from doubles competition. Jeannez Daniel and Nuria Ormeño Ruiz fell 6-3 to the 22nd-ranked doubles pair in the country, Alexandra Osborne and Emily Panoho from Arizona State in the Championship Draw.

    Annabelle Andrinopoulos and Alex Aiello, playing together for the first time this season due to an injury to teammate Brigitte Beck, dropped a 6-3 decision to Alexia Petrovic and Sarah Richter from Utah in the Invitational Draw.

    ...

    In the afternoon, four Buffaloes competed in consolation singles matches. Daniel and Ormeño Ruiz both ended their seasons on a high note with victories. Daniel defeated Audrey Mayer from California 6-2, 6-4 and Ormeño Ruiz won 6-3, 6-1 over Shayne Austin from Arizona.

    "It's always good for a player to finish on a high note for the year," Kenneally said. "That's good for Nuri and Nez, and Belle and Kyra were also competitive. As we look into the summer and next year, we continue to see what we need to work on."

    Friday's competition ends the season for the Buffs.

    Aiello is the lone senior on the roster. She finished her CU career ranked 36th in career singles wins with 46 and 36th in singles winning percentage at .554 (46-37). She also ranks 40th in combined singles and doubles wins with 72.
