LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The New Mexico State women’s tennis team wrapped the first day at the UNLV Invitational, Friday, Sept. 20. NM State saw four win their singles matches with one Aggie doubles team advance to the semifinals.

Senior Annemieke Witte and newcomer Brittany Collens teamed up for an 8-2 win to advance to the semifinals round of their respective flight. The duo is set to meet a pair of Rebels from UNLV on Saturday for a chance at Sunday’s finals.

“Overall a very solid day against some very good teams,” head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “We fought hard everywhere and could have won several other matches.”

Sophomore Mia Brandt took her first match of the weekend, a two-set win over Alexa Torres of Middle Tennessee State. Collens continued her winning ways with a first-round win in three sets (5-7, 6-4, 6-3). Junior Susana Alcaraz battled her way to a semifinals match after a two-set win, keeping her undefeated this season. Senior Denise Van Der Ben worked her way to a spot in Saturday’s semifinals round.

The Aggies continue at the UNLV Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 21, with matches beginning at 10 a.m. MT.
