In the Doubles Main Draw, Modesto and junior Raquel Wagner lost to Oklahoma’s Christi Baxley and Tara Eckel 8-1 in the round of 64. Weber and senior Chrissy Svetlic earned a bye in the round of 64, but lost in the round of 32 to Colorado’s Franzi Jendrian and Monica Milewski 8-5.

The Spring season starts on Jan. 26 in Fayetteville, Ark., when the Tigers face the Arkansas Lady Razorbacks.
