Orlando, Fla. -
Missouri Tennis completed a strong effort at the University of Central Florida Invitational over the weekend as the Tigers split six singles matches and got a victory from its #1 doubles tandem of Kaitlyn Ritchie and Mallory Weber on Sunday afternoon in Orlando.
The tournament, which began on Friday, saw the Tigers face Arkansas, Purdue and UCF in both singles and doubles competition throughout the weekend.
The Tigers met the Arkansas Razorbacks in doubles play Sunday as Ritchie and Weber knocked off Kate Lukomskaya and Kelsey Sundaram, 8-3. The Razorbacks did rally to claim wins at #2 and #3 doubles, but the win by Ritchie/Weber was their second during the three-day event.
In singles play Mizzou split six matches with the host Knights. Maria Christensen and Ritchie got the Tigers off to a great start with dominating wins. Christensen’s opponent, Jenny Frisell, retired from the match after trailing 5-0 in the first set, while Ritchie handled Alexis Rodriguez, 6-2, 6-1.
Christensen finished her weekend a perfect 3-0 after a win over Purdue on Saturday and opening win vs. UCF on Friday. The much-improved sophomore is now a perfect 7-0 in singles play on the year.
Missouri’s third win came from freshman sensation Rachel Stuhlmann, who knocked off Josephine Haraldson, 6-2, 6-1.
Missouri returns to action Oct. 21-24 at the ITA Regionals.
