Freshman Staudt remains unbeaten in 2012

Although the Jacksonville University women’s tennis team was defeated by South Carolina State 6-1, freshman Aline Staudt won her singles match and remained undefeated in 2012.  JU hosted South Carolina State Saturday afternoon at the Keith Watson Family Tennis Complex.

Staudt improved to 3-0 on the season with a win against South Carolina State’s Suhaila Jad on court one.  She was able to win in straight sets 6-4, 6-2. 

Staudt and teammate Natalia Marques Melibeu entered the match undefeated as a doubles team but were unable to keep that streak alive.   They were defeated by the team of Maria Craciun and Akilah James 8-0. 

Senior Virginia Iwinski was the only Dolphin to push her match to three sets.  She fought hard but was defeated by Katarina Barborikova 5-7, 6-3, 1-0. 

The Dolphins move to 1-2 on the season after the loss.  They return to action at home when they take on Bethune-Cookman February 8th at 2:30 pm.
