The No. 1 doubles team of junior Cierra Gaytan-Leach and sophomore Elisa Gabb took home the doubles title as the pair went 4-1 over the weekend. On Sunday, the duo earned an 8-3 win over Oklahoma State's Malika Rose and Meghan Blevins.
Gaytan-Leach also claimed the No. 2 singles crown after defeating Isaura Enrique of Tulsa, 6-4, 6-3, on Sunday. The junior was a perfect 2-0 at No. 2 action in the Invite.
Freshman Madison Rhyner won the No. 6 singles title as she posted a 6-3, 6-4 win over Tulsa's Belen Rivera Sunday morning.
Fans were given the option of pledging money per ace recorded or a minimum number of aces achieved, with all proceeds going toward Susan G. Komen Foundation of Kansas City. The Tigers led the field with 45 total aces, including 19 from Gaytan-Leach. Princeton totaled 31 aces, Tulsa 22 and Oklahoma State 15.
Three different Tigers will compete in the prequalifying round of the Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships Sept. 29-30. Gaytan-Leach and junior Rachel Stuhlmann will compete in singles action, while Gaytan-Leach and Gabb will play doubles.
