SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -
Two doubles teams and one individual for the Wyoming Cowgirl tennis team continued play at the 2008 Wilson ITA Central Region Tournament, on Thursday, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
"We began the day playing at a higher level of doubles than we've played all year," said UW assistant coach Dean Clower. "It's a great accomplishment to beat a team the caliber of Semenova and Tkachenkio of Oklahoma State. Sarah also fought through a tough first round match and showed a lot of maturity."
In doubles play, the Cowgirl team of Rebecca Berger and Sarah Summerfield earned a tough 9-8 win against Galina Semenova and Maryna Tkachenkio of Oklahoma State, but lost in the next round to Maria Ring and Wiveca Swarting of Nebraska, 8-5. Wyoming's Brittany DeFelice and Carly Van Hollen also fell short, 8-6, against Tori Arneson and Laura Neal of Colorado State.
The only UW player left in singles play, Sarah Summerfield won her opening match in the main draw, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, over Laura Boguet of New Mexico State. She will play the tenth seed in the tournament Lutfiana Budiharto of Wichita State in her next match.
