Cats get victories at Classic


    The K-State women’s tennis team returns home after earning multiple victories at the Razorback Classic in Fayetteville, Ark. The 3-day event took place at the Billingsley Tennis Center.
    The Wildcats opened the competition on Friday with a singles victory by junior Natasha Vieira, who beat Brittany Baldy of the University of Oklahoma.
    The doubles team of freshman Petra Chuda and Vieira also captured their first victory of the season Friday.
    On Saturday, Vieira continued her winning ways by defeating another opponent from OU, while sophomore Antea Huljev won her first singles match of the season.
    Huljev then proceeded to team up with Chuda, and the duo was able to defeat a team from the University of Tulsa.
    The last day of the Razorback Classic was moved into the Dillis Indoor Tennis Center due to Hurricane Ike.
    K-State closed out the competition with three victories on Sunday.
    Huljev captured her third victory of the season, freshman Mariya Slupska won her first career match and sophomore Vanessa Cottin won her first match of the season.
    The Wildcats’ next event will be in two weeks on Sept. 26-28 at the KU Invitational in Lawrence.
