MINNEAPOLIS -- Missouri State's Anelisse Torrico Moreno won her consolation match Friday as one of three Bears who will continue play Saturday at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Central Regional at Baseline Tennis Center.

Torrico Moreno was one of two Bears paired against Missouri Valley Conference opponents Friday, bouncing back from a 6-1 loss in the first set to Drake's Tess Herder before claiming tie-break wins in the final two sets. The junior will take on another MVC player, Giulia Guidetti of Wichita State, in the consolation round of 32 on Saturday.

MSU's Fati Khamissi, Ekaterina Donetskova and Alye Darter dropped their backdraw matches, and the Bears' two doubles entries fell in the first round to teams from Arkansas and Nebraska.

Darter and Torrico Moreno will begin their journey through the consolation doubles bracket Saturday against South Dakota State's Molly Crum and Elif Gabb.
