Five Seward County Community College women’s tennis players posted victories and both doubles pairs collected wins as the Lady Saints recorded a 10-10 overall singles and doubles record last weekend at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regional Tournament in Overland Park, Kan. The ITA Regional advances all tournament champions to the ITA National Tournament later this fall. SCCC freshman Fabiola Wisnesky led the Lady Saints with three victories in tournament competition. SCCC finished tournament play without advancing any players to the ITA National Tournament. The Lady Saints are now 32-22 overall this fall in singles and doubles match play.

Wisnesky, a freshman from Curitiba, Brazil, lost her opening round match against Cowley College, but then bounced back into contention with victories against Rend Lake College, and two against players from the University of Arkansas-Forth Smith. She lost her final match of tourney play to Johnson County C.C.

With all of the tournament players in one bracket, Seward County was forced to have sophomores Erica Herrera and Sanela Dejanovic battle against each other. Herrera won the head-to-head contest 8-1. Dejanovic picked up her singles victory against Rend Lake College in a shutout (8-0).

Freshman Valerie Stevens posted her victory against Rend Lake College, while freshman Alyssa Larson used three sets to defeat Rend Lake 7-6, 4-6, 10-6.

Herrera and Dejanovic collected a doubles win against Rend Lake (6-0, 6-1). Larson and Stevens went 2-1 in doubles play with back-to-back victories against Rend Lake competition.

The Lady Saints will compete in their first dual this weekend against Barton County Community College on Friday and Saturday in Great Bend, Kan.
