PULLMAN — Washington State's women's tennis team had difficulty getting anything going Sunday afternoon as they fell, 7-0, to No. 21 Arizona State.

With the loss, the Cougars moved to 12-9 on the season and 1-5 in conference play. Arizona State improved to 15-1 and stayed undefeated at 5-0 in Pac-12 play.

At No. 1 doubles, the Cougar duo of Liudmila Vasilieva and Charlotte Koning fell to the No. 40-ranked doubles team of Jacqueline Cako and Nicole Smith, 8-0.

Elizaveta Luzina and Charlotte Koning were bested by the No. 62 duo of Leighann Sahagun and Desirae Krawczyk, 8-1, at No. 3.

The Cougars fared no better in singles action. At No. 2 singles, Ksenia Googe fell 6-1, 6-0 to the No. 106-ranked singles player in Krawczyk.

Vasilieva had her work cut out for her at No. 1, facing the No. 23 player in the nation. After holding a 3-1 lead in the second set, she fell 6-1, 6-3, to Cako. Andjela Kankaras ran into similar problems in her match at No. 4, falling to Hannah James, 6-3, 6-1.

It was the last home match for four WSU seniors: Vasilieva, Googe, Kankaras, and Erin Troedson. The Cougars play at Colorado on Friday.

Eastern Washington's women's tennis team (6-12, 3-4 Big Sky) closed out its final road trip of the season beating Texas-Pan American, 5-2, in Flagstaff, Ariz.
