MORGANTOWN, W.Va Junior Habiba Shaker and freshman Christina Jordan won the lone match of the day in doubles play at the 2016 Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championships, in Pacific Palisades, California, on October 2.
“I am happy that we had another chance to compete this morning,” assistant coach Emily Harman said. “The focus was on the process. Once again, today reinforced what we need to do to win and where we need to be more efficient.”
In the pre-qualifiers consolation round, the duo of Jordan and Shaker defeated Maeva Razakasoa and Julie Gerard of Long Beach State, 8-5. The match was the last of the tournament for the pair after a round one defeat in the pre-qualifiers on Saturday.
“Overall, we gained fantastic experience, and will take a lot of positives and motivations home to Morgantown,” Harman said of the tournament.
The Mountaineers will travel to Cleveland, Ohio to compete in the Cleveland State Invitational on October 7-9. Four teams will take part in the Cleveland State Invitational: Duquesne, Akron, Cleveland State, and WVU.
