WMU Wraps Second Day at the Super Challenge
KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Western Michigan women's tennis finished up the second day of play at the WMU Super Challenge on Saturday, with Caroline Aleck and Nini Sujashvili each picking up singles wins on the day. The Broncos will conclude the weekend and the fall season with one round of singles on Sunday morning.
The most dramatic of the wins came courtesy of Sujashvili, who took a pair of tiebreakers against Notre Dame's Katherine White to pick up a victory. Sujasvhili took a marathon tiebreaker in the first set, defeating White 6-5 (9) to create a one-set advantage. The second set went to a tiebreaker as well, though Sujashvili took that one much more easily; she cruised past White 7-4 in the 'breaker to earn the straight sets victory.
Aleck's win was comparatively easier, and also came against a member of the Fighting Irish. Aleck took a tidy 6-1 decision in the first set against Darby Mountford, and weathered a much more competitive set in the second to win 6-1, 6-4. The win is the second in a row for Aleck, who leads the team with eight singles wins in the fall.
