Women's Tennis splits a pair of NACC matches

Against Rockford the Falcons won four of six singles matches and swept doubles play en route to the 7-2 victory. Sophomore Amadna Ropiak (Franklin, Wis.) played her first match of the season at No. 1 singles and cruised to a 6-2, 6-4 victory to pace the Falcons.
Sophomore Ashley Knoll (Wilmot, Wis.) picked up a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 2 singles for CUW, while freshman Michaela Wagner (Oswego, Ill.) earned a 6-2, 6-0 victory at the No. 3 singles spot. Also winning in singles play for CUW was freshman Alisia Macioch (South St. Paul, Minn.) as she netted a 6-2, 6-4 No. 5 singles victory.
Wagner was also on the winning side of things in doubles play as she partnered with Macioch for an 8-1 No. 1 double wins. Ropiak and freshman Jessica Sapp (Memphis, Mich.) gained an 8-2 win at No. 2 doubles and freshmen Kierra Kuehl (Random Lake, Wis.) and Amanda Beierle (Franklin, Wis.) rounded out the doubles lineup with an 8-1 victory at the No. 3 position.
