Lady Senators dominate singles play

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Auburn University at Montgomery women's tennis team finished undefeated in singles play and dropped just one doubles match this weekend, when it participated in the Fall Blue-Gray Invitational, hosted by the City of Montgomery at Lagoon Park.

The Lady Senators finished with a perfect 20-0 in the five singles flights, highlighted by sophomore Morgane Zowckak's 5-0 performance in flight four. Juniors Ana Veselenovic and Kvetka Hajkova, as well as sophomore Alina Tsepulkhova finished their respective flights with a 4-0 record, while freshman Jade Curtis finished 3-0 in singles play in flight one.

In addition to the flawless singles record, AUM dropped just one set in its matches. Facing UAB's Jenny Cape in the second round of flight five, Tseplukhova defeated Cape, 6-4, in the first set, but dropped a marathon second set, 7-6 (12-10). However, she battled back to win the match with a 10-8 victory in set three.

In doubles play, the Lady Senators were nearly as dominant. Veselenovic and Zowckak won both of their matches in the flight two draw, defeating Shorter's Danielle Monteith and Emma deBecoudey, 8-1, in the semifinals and Emory's Jordan Wylie and Malavika Padmanabhan, 8-2, in the finals.

Curtis and Haijkova won their first two matches of the flight one draw, before falling in the finals to the duo of Lorne McManigal and Zahra Dawson from Emory.

The AUM tennis team will return to action at the ITA South Region Championships, hosted by Xavier University (La.) from Oct. 1-3.
