LONG BEACH - The 55th-ranked Long Beach State women's tennis team was leading No. 67 BYU 2-1 on Saturday at the Rhodes Tennis Center when bad weather halted the match. The remainder of the match will not be played as the Cougars head back to Provo, Utah tomorrow.
Play began with singles instead of the usual doubles due to the weather forecast that called for heavy rain throughout Southern California. Three matches were able to finish, while two other matches were close to being clinched when the match was called.
For LBSU, Maeva Razakasoa downed Meghan Sheehan-Dizon 6-3 6-2 to maintain her unblemished record so far this season. Teammate Hayley Thompson also won her match as she prevailed 6-2, 6-4 over Morgan Anderson-Littlewood. At the No. 3 spot, the BYU earned its lone point, as Julie Gerard wasn't able to fight off Nicolette Tran, falling 6-4, 6-4.
In the other singles matches, Ebba Unden was serving match point when the match was called. Unden was leading Mayci Jones 6-3, 5-4 and was up 30-love in the final game. At the No. 4 spot, Karolina Rozenberg came back from a first set loss to Toby Miclat to win the second set and she then was leading 4-1 in the third. Finally, Holly Reid also lost her first set to Savannah Ware, but came back to take the second set. She was behind 3-1 in the third set.
Beach Tennis will remain at home next week for two more nonconference matches. Tulane will visit the Rhodes Tennis Center on Thursday for a 2 p.m. match while Montana comes to town on Saturday for an 11 a.m. start.
