MASON, Ohio — Two members of the NKU women’s tennis team won singles events Saturday at the Greater Cincinnati Collegiate Invitational at the Lindner Family Tennis Center and the Eastern Hills Indoor Tennis Club.

Nicole Soutar started Saturday with a 7-6(3), 6-1 victory over Halli Roach of Valparaiso. She then defeated Dani Gryckiewicz of St. Francis in the flight five final, 6-1, 6-4.

Sierra Nellessen advanced to the finals of flight six before falling to Abby Roebker of Xavier, 6-3, 6-7, [10-3].

Sydney Power and Klara Skopac each advanced to consolation finals of their respective flights, but they were cancelled due to rain.

Skopac and Hailey Shanahan advanced to the semifinals of the first doubles flight, but they were defeated by Dayton 6-1.

The NKU women return to action October 2-4 at the NKU Open, which is open to the public. People interested in entering the event can contact Coach Brian Nester at bpnester@fuse.net.
