Denver women's tennis senior Bianca Mok fell to No. 13 Anastasia Rychagova (Kansas) 6-1, 7-6 in the first round of the 2019 NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Singles Championship at the UTSA National Campus in Orlando, Fla on Monday. 

No. 101 Mok pushed Rychagova to the brink in the second set, forcing a tiebreaker she ultimately lost. The Boise, Idaho native finished the season with a 15-3 singles record, playing every dual match at No. 1. The two-time Summit League Player of the Year and four-time All-Summit League honoree caps her Pioneer career with her second trip to the NCAA tournament, previously going to the 2018 NCAA Doubles Championship with partner Julia O'Loughlin.
