Competing in their first competition of the season, the Long Beach State women’s tennis team duo of Julie Gerard and Maeva Razakasoa won the No. 2 flight doubles title at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Invitational.

The pair defeated University of Southern California’s double team of Angela Kulikov and Madison Westby 8-6 Sunday, capping off a 3-0 weekend.

Gerard won the Flight No.2 consolation final against Northern Arizona’s Blanka Szazay 3-6, 7-6 and 6-1. The pair went 5-1 in overall play for the weekend.

Along with Gerard and Razakasoa, freshman Lena Pacholski came up short in the semifinals to reach the No. 3 singles flight, losing to UNLV’s Paola Artiga 7-6 and 6-3.
