Iepuras wins 100th match

By Cooper Sutton

Sports Editor

Dumitrita Iepuras ’12 won her milestone 100th match as a Bison at home during the Bison Quad this past weekend. She is only the 10th player in Bison women’s tennis to do so.  Jen Bush ’15 and Alyssa McAndrew ’15 also made it to the doubles finals.

After a first round bye, Iepuras dismantled Kelsey Wanhainen of Colgate, 6-0. She was not as lucky on Saturday, after rain forced the matches inside, losing 8-3 to Youngstown State’s Marta Burak in a shortened match. Burak was the overall winner of the Flight A singles tournament.

Elena Vidriscu ’14 also made it to the semifinals in Flight A singles. She won her first two rounds without losing a set, but fell to Hilary Hansen of Niagara 8-4.

In Flight B singles, four of five Bison advanced through the first round, with none of the matches going to three sets. None of those four made it past her quarterfinal match.

Bush and McAndrew won their first three matches before ultimately falling in the finals. They won their first two matches 8-4 and 8-3. In the semifinals, they won an 8-6 contest before ultimately falling 8-3 to a team from Youngstown State.

The Bison Quad marked the end of the fall season for the women’s tennis team, who will be back in action again in January.
