MORAGA, Calif. - The San José State women's tennis team wrapped up a rain-altered weekend at the Saint Mary's Invitational on Sunday, squeezing 15 matches in on a busy day at the Korth Tennis Complex.

After doubles play was suspended Saturday, Julianna Bacelar and Marie Klocker resumed action Sunday morning with a pair of 8-5 victories to claim the white division doubles crown. The duo defeated Julija Lukac and Riko Shimizu of Washington before taking down Freddie Sleiffer and Kamila Kecki of UC Davis in the finals.

Abbie Pahz continued her stellar start to her Spartans career with a pair of white division singles victories to move her singles record on the weekend to 4-0. In the quarterfinals, Pahz topped Shimizu, 6-3, 7-6(10), before Shimizu's teammate, Miki Kobayashi, was forced to withdraw in the semifinal round. The finals were not played due to time constraints.

In red division doubles action, Gaelle Rey and Malin Cubukcu squeezed out an 8-7(3) victory over Pacific's Hana Ritterova and Iveta Masarova to advance to the finals. San Francisco's Andrea Ka and Marina Nikolic, the tournament's top seed, proved to be too much to handle, however, as Rey and Cubukcu fell 8-3.

All six Spartans competing in the tournament - Bacelar, Klocker, Pahz, Rey, Cubukcu and Jessica Willett - recorded at least one doubles or singles victory Sunday.
