Huskies Dominate Day One of Husky Invitational

Nov. 13, 2004

SEATTLE, Wash. -Three Husky women's tennis players advanced into the semifinals in the top flight of singles today at the first-ever Husky Invitational at the Nordstrom Tennis Center. The tournament, which features several northwest schools, was dominated by Washington on day one.

The Huskies welcomed in competitors from Oregon, Boise State and Portland for the two-day tournament. In the top flight of singles, only Portland's Christin Sammis prevented a foursome of Huskies from reaching the semis. UW veterans Dea Sumantri, Dinka Hadzic and Saskia Nauenberg all reached the semifinals of the headlining draw. Sumantri defeated new freshman teammate Allison Rainey in the quarterfinals, 6-3, 6-1. Nauenberg also had to battle a young teammate in the quarterfinals, defeating freshman Tara Simpson 6-4, 7-5. Hadzic advanced by overpowering Boise State's Carolina Pongratz, 6-2, 6-2.

The top flight of doubles was also dominated by Washington. Sumantri and freshman teammate Cassy Fabiani made it through to the semifinals with an 8-2 win over a Portland duo. Hadzic and Rainey also reached the final four with an 8-0 blanking of another tandem from Portland.

In the second singles flight, Husky sophomore Monika Kolbovic reached the semifinals with a straight-set win over Lindsey Griffin of Portland.

The semifinals and finals for singles and doubles play take place tomorrow, Nov. 14, beginning at 9 a.m.
