2008-09 Season - Emily Doemland and Tricia Sapio finish in third place at number three and number four singles as Vikings take fifth at CCIW Women's Tennis Championship

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – The Augustana women’s tennis team concluded its fall season with a fifth place finish at the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Championship on Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11 at Evergreen Racquet Club in Bloomington, Illinois.  The Vikings were led by third place finishes from junior Emily Doemland (Downers Grove South HS, Westmont, Ill.) and sophomore Tricia Sapio (Barrington HS, Hoffman Estates, Ill.) at number three and number four singles and finished the two day event with 22 points.

 

Wheaton won the team title with 78 points, followed by Carthage with 59 points.  Illinois Wesleyan was third with 27 points while North Central edged out Augustana for fourth place with 24 points.  Elmhurst was sixth with 13 points and Millikin finished seventh with three points.

 

Doemland finished third at number three singles after going 2-1 on the weekend.  She received a first round bye as the #4 seed, but fell (6-0, 6-3) to top seeded Brittney Dunn of Wheaton in the semi-final round.  Doemland responded with an (8-3) victory against Sabrina Ruff of Elmhurst in the consolation semi-finals and then defeated #3 seed Kristin Piotrowski (8-3) in the third place match.

 

Sapio was also a third place finisher, going 3-1 at the tournament in the fourth singles flight.  Entering as the #4 seed, she defeated Elmhurst’s Blair Hufford (6-4, 6-2) in the opening round of action.  After falling (6-1, 6-1) to Kayli Edwards of Wheaton in the semi-finals, Sapio earned close wins against Sarah Wilson of Illinois Wesleyan (9-8 (8-6)) and #3 seed Missy Lewis of North Central (8-6) to earn a third place finish.

 

Augustana also received a pair of fourth place finishes at number two and number three doubles.  Junior Jenna Richardson (Melrose Park Walther Lutheran HS, Bellwood, Ill.) and senior Alli Bernardi (Rockford Lutheran HS, Belvidere, Ill.) put together a 2-2 mark over the weekend to finish in fourth place in the second doubles flight.  The duo entered as the #4 seed and cruised past Millikin’s Kristen Sproat and Michelle Hart (6-0, 6-0) in the first round.  Richardson and Bernardi dropped into the consolation draw after falling (6-1, 6-3) to top seeded Dunn and Edwards, but responded with an (8-3) victory against Piotrowski and Kathleen Johnson of Illinois Wesleyan.  The Viking tandem lost (8-4) to Christine Heyd and Alicia DeGrado of North Central in the third place match.

 

Freshman Brittany Reece (Naperville Neuqua Valley HS, Naperville, Ill.) and sophomore Justine Stukas (Downers Grove North HS, Downers Grove, Ill.) combined for a fourth place showing in the third doubles flight.  After losing (6-3, 6-2) to Sarah Wilson and Cate Hunter of Illinois Wesleyan in the first round, the Vikings received a bye in the consolation draw to move into the consolation semi-final round of play.  The fourth seeded Augustana pair knocked off North Central’s Lewis and Cristina Madrigal (9-7), but dropped an (8-6) decision to Wilson and Hunter of Illinois Wesleyan in the third place match.

 

Augustana will resume action during its annual spring trip to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina in March.
