Cowgirls Sweep Bears

March 15, 2008


The Wyoming Cowgirl tennis team earned their eighth victory of the season with a 6-0 win against the Northern Colorado Bears, on Saturday morning, in Laramie.

"I thought we stepped up and played well today," said UW head coach Krissy Hall. "This was a good start for us to start our three match road swing next week."

The teams started the match with singles play and the Cowgirls won all six contests. UW senior Corina Lazar earned a two set win, 6-3, 6-4 over Tabatha Knop, while Cowgirl freshman Rebecca Berger defeated Tiffany Knop, 6-1, 6-4. Wyoming's Carly Van Hollen also had a nice win in two sets, 6-3, 6-2, over Manuela Santos. At the number four position, Cowgirl Michelle Brown earned a 6-1, 6-2 win against Karen Groll, as did UW's Sarah Summerfield against Luiza Xavier, 6-0, 7-5. Wyoming freshman Brittany DeFelice closed things out with a 6-4, 1-6, 10-5 victory, over Jodi Ciarvella.

Doubles matches were scheduled but not played since the match outcome had already been decided.

Wyoming will resume play on Wednesday, March 19, as they travel to California to take on the San Jose State Spartans.
