After claiming the doubles point thanks to wins at the first and third flights, Akron fell behind 3-1 in the match scoring as Oregon won in order at Nos. 6, 2 and 3 singles in straight sets. Ksenia Berestetska helped the Zips pull to within 3-2 when she posted a 6-4, 6-0 win over Lana Buttner at No. 5, and then Olga Shkundina took No. 4 singles 6-1, 1-6, 6-1 to make the score 3-all.

Middle Tennessee closed to within 3-2 with victories at No. 5 (6-1, 6-3) and No. 3 (6-4, 6-4) and forced a third set at No. 1 , but Guerrazzi was able to clinch the victory.

HUSKIES COMPLETE SWEEP OF WEEKEND MATCHES
Northern Illinois Defeats Butler, 6-1; Improves to 8-1 on the Season
INDIANAPOLIS – Northern Illinois completed a sweep of its three weekend women’s tennis matches with a 6-1 victory over Butler Sunday at the Butler Bubble in Indianapolis.

“For the third straight day, we played very well and very tough,” said NIU Head Coach Ryun Ferrell. “It was nice to see. Playing three matches in three days row is not an easy thing and Butler is a good team that is well coached. Now we need to get ready for Chicago State. It will be nice to play at home and be in a familiar setting.”
NIU took the doubles point for the seventh time this spring as Nelle Youel and Arantza De La Torre claimed a tight 8-6 win at No. 1 to keep their undefeated record intact, and Mary Malkin and Cristina Alvarez teamed up for an 8-1 win at No. 3 doubles.

Rockets Burned by Flames 5-2 in Non-Conference Tilt
GRIFFITH, IN - The Toledo women's tennis team lost a tough battle for the doubles point, and could only gather two singles wins at the top of its lineup in a 5-2 non-conference loss to Illinois-Chicago in a dual match at Match Point Tennis Saturday afternoon.
"This was an incredibly close match against an experienced team," head coach Tracy Mauntler said. "We worked hard for the doubles point, but did not close when we needed to. I'm proud of the way we went out and battled in singles."
UT led early on in doubles play, but UIC mounted a comeback to capture wins at the No. 1 and No. 2 flights to jump out to a 1-0 lead heading into singles play. Senior Silvia Carvajal and freshman Katelyn Nguyen dropped a close 8-6 contest at the No. 1 doubles position, followed by a narrow 8-7 (7-2) pro-set loss at No. 2 by the freshman pair of Mackenzie Bowman and Emily Mazzola. The sophomore tandem of Lexy Pitt and Pia Rygh notched an 8-6 victory at the third doubles flight.
The Rockets posted wins in both the No. 1 and No. 2 singles flights until the Flames took control of the match through the rest of the lineup. Junior Chrissy Coffman won in straight sets at the top flight, while Rygh recorded a come-from-behind victory at No. 2 by scores of 6-7 (7-1), 7-5, 10-6. The match turning point came at the third singles flight when Nguyen lost to her counterpart in three sets, including tiebreakers in both the second and third frames. Carvajal's match at the final singles flight also extended to a third set, but UIC grinded out the win 3-6, 6-2, 7-5.
"I'm optimistic about the potential of this young team," Mauntler said. "I see key players getting better each time they step on the court, which is what we are looking for at this time of the year."
The Midnight Blue & Gold will travel to Pittsburgh for a 1:30 p.m. match at Duquesne next Friday. Following that match, UT will take off on its Spring Break trip to Orlando, FL on March 4-9.

Broncos Dominate Doubleheader, Earn Two Victories
KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Western Michigan women's tennis team dominated both ends of a doubleheader on Saturday, executing a clean sweep of both singles and doubles play in defeating both the IUPUI Jaguars and Bradley Braves 7-0 at West Hills Athletic Club. With the wins, the Broncos improve to 6-3 on the season.
Indeed, the Broncos were perfect in their dual matches on Saturday, failing to drop a single match to either opponent. Three players went 4-0 overall on Saturday, including Nini Sujashvili, who earned two No. 1 singles wins, a No. 1 doubles win, and a No. 2 doubles win. Jill Pastunink and Kelsey King also turned the trick, teaming together for a pair of doubles wins and each winning their respective singles matches. Kathleen Hawkins went 3-0, including two No. 1 singles wins, and Maggie Remynse and Caroline Aleck also posted 3-0 marks.
The Broncos opened the day with a relatively quick victory over the Jaguars, dominating two doubles matches before the third was left unfinished. Sujashvili and Hawkins showed they could re-spark the good chemistry they displayed last season, downing Vanessa Whyte and Rachael Bridegroom 8-0 in the No. 1 singles match. Pastunink and King teamed up for their first win of the day, beat Jesika Bays and Jaclyn Hyman 8-1, clinching the doubles point for the Broncos.
Sujashvili was the first Bronco off the court in singles play, defeating Whyte 6-2, 6-1 in the No. 1 singles match to make it a 2-0 advantage. Aleck was not far behind, beating Bays 6-0, 6-1, and freshman Hailey Shanahan had the privilege of clinching the match victory with a 7-5, 6-0 win over Hyman in the No. 6 singles match. King rebounded from a three-set singles loss the night before to beat Bridegroom 6-3, 6-3 in the No. 5 match, Remynse came back from a set down to beat Shelby Hullett in the No. 3 singles match, and Pastunink wrapped the scoring with a battle, winning a two-setter with Bobbi Modesto 6-4, 6-3.
The second match of the day proved to be as positive as the first, as the Broncos carried over the positive momentum from their win over the Jaguars into a victory over the Bradley Braves. Sujashvili teamed with Remynse in doubles to get things rolling, downing Sarah Rodefeld and Cassia Wojtalik 8-1 in the No. 2 match to open play. Pastunink and King earned their second doubles win of the day, beating Kennedy Scott and Carly Miles 8-5 in the No. 3 doubles match to clinch the doubles point. Hawkins and Aleck closed the scoring with a win in the No. 1 doubles match, cruising past Adele Henke and Corey Mattson 8-2.
Aleck gave the Broncos a 2-0 edge with a win over Wojtalik in the No. 5 singles match, winning 6-1, 6-0, and Remynse put the Broncos in prime position with a 6-2, 6-0 win over Elizabeth Przystawski in the No. 4 singles match. King clinched the match win for the Broncos in the No. 6 singles match, downing Miles 6-1, 6-1, and Pastunink finished just after with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Rodefeld in the No. 3 match. Hawkins and Sujashvili rounded out the scoring for the Broncos on the day, winning the Nos. 2 and 1 singles matches, respectively, with Sujashvili earning a hard-fought win over Henke 6-4, 6-3.
