Kansas Tennis Completes Day Two of Notre Dame's Eck Classic

Oct. 3, 2010


Victoria Khanevskaya continued her stellar play Saturday, in day two of the Eck Classic at Notre Dame, advancing to the finals in her singles draw and winning her doubles draw with partner Kate Goff to lead the Jayhawks for the second day in a row.

Khanevskaya defeated Miami’s Katie Thome in a tough three-set match in the quarterfinals of the Green Singles Draw. The sophomore went 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 against Thome to advance to tomorrow’s final.

Khanevskaya then went on to claim the Green Doubles Draw with Goff. The duo won the draw with an 8-4 win against Anastasia Dracheva and Thome.

The Jayhawks couldn’t match Friday’s doubles performance, as Goff and Khanevskaya were the only doubles winners Saturday. Sara Lazarevic and Monica Pezzotti and Dylan Windom and Paulina Los dropped their quarterfinal matches.

In the consolation draws, Windom and Los fell 8-2 to Chrissie McGaffigan and Julie Sabancinski. Lazarevic and Pezzotti fell 8-5 against Noelle Malley and Gabby Steele.

Play concludes tomorrow at the Eck Tennis Center, in South Bend, Ind.
