KU Tennis Concludes Fall Season at Final Day of Kitty Harrison Invitational

Nov. 12, 2006

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The University of Kansas tennis team put a close to its fall season on Sunday at the final day of the North Carolina Kitty Harrison Invitational in Chapel Hill.

A day after sophomore Yuliana Svistun won the championship of the Carolina singles draw, the Jayhawks had several players compete in singles and doubles play on the final day of the event.

In doubles action, KU’s tandems of junior Elizaveta Avdeeva and sophomore Edina Horvath and junior Lauren Hommell and freshman Kunigunda Dorn each fell in the consolation finals of their brackets. Dorn and Hommell lost to Keener and Lock from Marshall, 8-6, while an injury to Horvath kept the duo from competing in the consolation final of the Blue draw.

In singles play, junior Stephanie Smith won two consolation matches in the White draw, advancing to the championship contest, but the final was not played.

Avdeeva and Dorn, who on Saturday each played their way into the semifinals of the Blue consolation singles bracket, each failed to reach the championship on Sunday. Avdeeva fell, 7-6, 6-3, to William & Mary’s Katrina Zoricic, while Dorn was dropped by Kentucky’s Joelle Schwen in a shortened match, 8-3.

KU will next be in action when it begins its spring dual season on Jan. 20 against Indiana.
