NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Notre Dame sophomore Lindsey Green capped a perfect season-opener at the Indiana Fall Invitational Sunday by winning the number two singles flight a day after winning the doubles title. Freshman Katie Cuhna also captured her singles flight to give the Irish three titles overall at the three-day tournament in Bloomington, Ind.
Green defeated Ball State’s Gena Tranquada, 6-3, 7-5, to pick up the win, while Cuhna defeated Miami’s Janet Baker, 6-3, 6-2, in the fourth singles flight. Notre Dame got a third-place performance from senior Kelly Zalinski, who won by default over Western Michigan’s Larissa Chinwah. Other Irish players to compete in singles matches on Sunday included sophomore Nina Vaughn (sixth – flight two), Kim Guy (fifth – flight three), Sarah Scaringe (fourth – flight four) and Michelle Hamilton, who finished with an 1-2 record in the round robin singles flight number eight.
The Notre Dame women’s tennis team will be back in action, September 30 through October 3 at the ITA/World Team Tennis National Intercollegiate championships in Palo Alto, Calif.
