Day Two of adidas Hoosier Classic Comes to a Close
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Mother Nature hampered with day two of the adidas Hoosier Classic as teams moved back-and-forth between the outdoor and indoor courts, but all scheduled matches were played without much delay.
IU freshman Carolyn Chupa kept her perfect singles weekend intact with a victory over Georgia’s Kate Fuller, 7-6 (7), 6-3. Sophie Garre was also victorious with her first singles win of the season. Garre topped Kansas State’s Carmen Borau giving up just three games, 6-0, 6-3. Shannon Murdy was triumphant over Georgia’s Rachel Hart for her second collegiate singles win, 6-0, 6-3. Katie Klyczek earned a win over Julie Sabacinski from Notre Dame in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. Diana Kyllmann played in her first singles match of the year and came out on top of Petra Chuda of KSU, 7-5, 6-0.
In doubles, Kyllmann teamed with Murdy to win two matches during the afternoon. The Hoosier duo of Kayla Fujimoto and Evgeniya Vertesheva also went a perfect 2-0 on the day.
“I thought we had another really good day. I thought we got over powered in a few spots when playing some of the top players,” head coach Lin Loring said. “Some of those players, like NCAA Singles Champion Chelsey Gullickson and her partner Nadja Gilchrist from Georgia hit the ball as hard as anyone in the nation. It was a great learning experience, especially for the freshman. What a great way to start your college career, playing an NCAA Champion.”
The third and final day of the adidas Hoosier Classic will take place on Sunday beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the IU Tennis Complex.
