@HurricaneTennis Closes Play In Miami Invite

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s tennis team concluded competition in the 2015 Miami Spring Invitational as it posted several strong performances in both singles and doubles play Sunday morning at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

The Hurricanes opened the day by going 2-2 in doubles action and then proceeded to post a 7-2 mark in singles competition as they faced off against Utah and No. 11 Vanderbilt.

“I was really happy with the girls’ performances today,” Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. “I think that everybody down the line did a great job. We knew that we needed come out and set a positive tone today against Vanderbilt because they are a team that we could realistically see in the NCAA Tournament, so it was important for us to go out and have a great showing.”

No. 15 Monique Albuquerque and Clementina Riobueno gave the Hurricanes their first victory of the day as they defeated Utah’s pair of Sarah Richter/Luisa Gerstner Da Ro by a 7-5 count. However, the Utah’s duo of Tereza Bekerova and Margo Pletcher defeated Miami’s eighth-ranked duo of Stephanie Wagner and Lina Lilekite by a 7-5 count.

In the singles competition, the Hurricanes posted seven victories. No. 39 Sinead Lohan led the way with a convincing 6-0, 6-2 decision over Vanderbilt’s Frances Altick. No. 88 Riobueno also posted a victory as she went 6-3, 6-3 over Vanderbilt’s Courtney Colton.

Seventh-ranked Wagner dropped a thrilling three-set matchup against No. 15 Sydney Campbell from Vanderbilt.

“These are the teams that we need to be playing if we want to get better,” Yaroshuk-Tews said. “If we are trying to a line ourselves to be going deep in the tournament, we need to be playing these schools early in the season with a week of practice under our belt. There was some pretty amazing tennis for three days and that’s what we needed.”

Miami returns to action Jan. 24-25 as it takes part in the 2015 ITA National Indoor Kickoff Weekend at home.
