AUSTIN, Texas - On the last day of the Longhorn Invitational hosted by University of Texas in Austin, three Ladyjacks played out their final matches of the tournament. Senior Malena Gordo and freshmen Macarena Sedano Acosta and Andrea Ternera appeared for SFA and faced a field including players from University of Texas, Rice, UTSA, Wisconsin, Wichita State, and McNeese State.
With a win in her column over Wisconsin's Sydney Rider on Saturday, Senior Malena Gordo looked to improve her record over Rice's Steph Nguyen. Gordo took control in the first set netting a 6-2 lead, and continued on cruising past Nguyen 6-2, 6-3 for the win. Gordo netted herself a 2-2 tally for the weekend against tough opponents that included the eventual back draw winner and fourth seed for Flight 1, Rebecca Pedrazzi (Wichita State).
Gordo and Ternera met more Rice challengers in doubles on day three in Jane Stewart and Solo Zinko. The Ladyjack team kept it close, but fell 8-6.
This was SFA's final fall appearance. Their first regular season dual meet will take place on the road Jan. 25 against SMU in Dallas.
