Women’s Tennis

It came down to the final court, but No. 24 Arizona State (4-1) came out with the win on Saturday. Ilze Hattingh had to go the distance in her singles match and eventually pulled through to put the Sun Devils on top 4-3 over Oklahoma (3-2).

Despite Hattingh and Lauryn John-Baptiste falling in their doubles match, Tereza Kolarova/Giulia Morlet (6-2) and Sammi Hampton/Marianna Argyrokastriti (6-4) netted the doubles point for the Sun Devils.

Hampton took home another singles point for ASU after her opponent Martina Capurro abandoned her match. Argyrokastriti swept her match to help get the Sun Devils to the game-cliniching four points needed.

Arizona State will host Kansas State on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. MT.

Gymnastics

Jay and Jessica Santos’ team scored it highest score since 2006 on Saturday. Nevertheless, No. 3 Utah (5-1) spoiled No. 16 Arizona State’s (2-3) mark with a 197.450-197.150 win over the Gym Devils.

Two Arizona State gymnasts took home event titles as Juliette Boyer stood alone on top for bars after her 9.925 score.

Hannah Scharf’s 9.925 — a new career-high — on floor tied Utah’s Maile O’Keefe for the best performance of the day. Scharf fell .050 short of a fourth-straight All-Around title but her 39.475 score is tied for her second highest mark in her career.

A handful of other Devils set career-highs. Sarah Clark and Gracie Reeves put up their best in the floor exercises. Emily White and Jada Mangahas’s vault scores topped their career best.

Arizona State will look to build off this performance when it travels to Cal on Feb. 14 at 3:00 p.m. MT.

Wrestling

Arizona State wrestling (3-0) hit the mats again on Saturday. The seventh-ranked Sun Devils bested No. 25 Wyoming (3-3) 29-15 in Laramie.

The two biggest victories for Arizona State came from No. 7 Cohlton Schultz (heavyweight) and No. 5 Kordell Norfleet (197) who each earned pins. Norfleet faced ranked opponent No. 21 Stephen Buchanan.

The trio of Cory Crooks (149), No. 4 Brandon Courtney (125) and No. 4 Anthony Valencia (165) each won two matches, one for the team score and another as individuals. Valencia bested No. 22 Cole Moody.
