MADISON, Wis. - Concordia University Wisconsin women's tennis players Meagan Harrington and Julie Spransy enjoyed successful days at the Northern Athletics Conference Individual Tournament on Saturday at Nielsen Tennis Stadium. They each advanced to the quarterfinals in the individual bracket and to the semifinals as a doubles team.
The five-time defending champion Falcons sent four singles players and two doubles teams to the tournament. Overall, CUW finished with a 6-2 record in singles play and a 3-1 record in doubles play.
Harrington (sophomore, Kingsford, Mich.) - the No. 2 singles player - received a first round bye and eased her way into the quarterfinals with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Kamile Udrenaite (Concordia University Chicago) before knocking off Rebecca Hezcko (Marian University) 6-3, 6-2.
Spransy (junior, Brown Deer, Wis.) - the No. 5 ranked singles player - also received a first-round bye and cruised during the next two rounds to advance to the quarterfinals. She downed Kelly Olia (Edgewood College) 6-3, 6-3 prior to defeating April Schmitz (Lakeland College) 6-1, 6-0.
The two again paired with each other as a double team and had no trouble advancing to the semifinals of the doubles portion of the tournament. They knocked off Nicole Shavlik/April Schmitz (Lakeland College) 8-2, before taking down Elizabeth Nelson/Kornelia Nowaczyk (Dominican University) 8-0.
Junior Jaclyn Ward (Franklin, Wis.) won a pair of singles matches before her day ended with a heartbreaking extra-point loss. She defeated Maureen Wagner (Aurora University) 6-4, 6-4 and Ann Goyke (Marian University) 6-4, 6-2.
