WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (Sept. 12, 2009) - A day after earning a number of individual wins the ETSU women's tennis team continued play at the 17th annual William and Mary Fall Invitational Saturday, at the Busch Tennis Center in Williamsburg, Va.

 

In doubles play the ETSU duo of junior Tara Sheets (Gate City, Va.) and newcomer Diana Navrostskaya (Johannesburg, South Africa) picked up a victory during their second match, dropping Richmond's team of Matuszczky and Smyth, 8-6.

 

"I'm proud of how Tara responded this morning," said head coach Steve Brooks. "One thing that I believe our club has this season is versatility. When a player can't go or we need to switch our rotation its vital that all our players know which role they play and how they can help the team."

 

During singles action senior Yevgeniya Stupak (Kyiv, Ukraine) rebounded after Friday's second round loss, making quick work of Martha Blakely of Virgina Tech's in straight sets 6-1, 6-0. With the victory the ETSU captain will now face Winthrop's Elizaveta Zaytesva in the Flight A fifth place conest, Sunday.

 

Unfortunately for ETSU, the remaining three Lady Buc players junor Andra Voina (Brasov, Romania), sophomores Paula Jaime (Madrid, Spain) and Karina Kedzo (Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela) all fell during day two action.

 

 "Like yesterday it was good to get out and play today," said head coach Steve Brooks. "Our team had some good points, but I don't think our fitness level is exactly where it needs to be. Tomorrow I expect the girls to keep playing hard and hopefully we can continue to build on what we've done the last two days."

 ETSU returns to the courts with the final play of the William and Mary Invitational, Sunday.
