NOTRE DAME, Ind. –
The Notre Dame women’s tennis team wrapped up its fall schedule Sunday by going 2-1 on the final day of the Eck Classic. The Irish concluded the tournament with an overall record of 9-3.
Potts defeated Western Michigan’s Kerstin Pahl to win the consolation bracket of the Blue flight, scoring a 6-3, 7-6 victory. Pahl was a familiar opponent for Potts, who teamed with Krisik to defeat Pahl and her Bronco teammate Ashley Moccia in Saturday’s doubles championship match. Potts concluded the weekend with a 5-1 record.
Krisik, the only freshman to see action this weekend, won her second singles match in as many days, defeating Kristina Minor of Illinois 6-2, 7-6 to win the consolation bracket of the Gold Flight. It was the second straight day that the Irish rookie closed out a match in a second set tiebreaker.
Tefft closed out her fall season by falling to DePaul’s Dunja Antunovic 6-4, 7-5. The Notre Dame sophomore was involved in close matches all weekend as four of her six sets ended in 7-5 scores. She was 3-1 in those sets.
With the fall season concluded, the Irish will set their sights on improving upon last season’s program best 27-2 record and quarterfinal NCAA appearance. The spring season opens January 12 at the UNLV Invitational.
