The Mizzou women's tennis team earned two individual titles and one doubles title in the final day of the Aces for the Cure Invitational Sunday morning at The Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City, Mo.
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.
