Concordia Women Capture Conference Tennis Title

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The Concordia College Clippers women's tennis captured their third straight Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Championship title Sunday with a strong 5-2 victory over Goldey-Beacom College.

Concordia topped Goldey-Beacom in the final for the third straight year opening the match with a strong doubles showing.

Clara Catanzano (Sete, France) and Yuliya Plevako (Astana, Kazakhstan) won their No. 1 doubles match 9-8 (7-5) over the duo of Stephanie Puentes and Anastasia Melnikova and the No. 2 doubles team of Ana S.O. Mendes (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil) and Juliana Frey (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil) won their match easily, 8-2, over Marina Sales and Gabriela Chaves.

Camilla Gomes Xavier (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) and Maria Ortiz (Bogota, Columbia) kept the doubles pressure going with an 8-5 victory over Blanca Sancho and Vanessa Leon to give Concordia a 3-0 lead heading into singles play.

In singles play, Plevako lost to Puentes in the No. 1 and Catanzano also had trouble in her No. 3 singles match, falling 6-2, 6-4. Mendes then battled her way to the eventual 6-3 third set victory in the No. 2 singles, which put Concordia one win away from the championship title.

The fifth match victory for the Clippers came from Ortiz, a senior, who defeated Melanie Bonomo 6-2, 6-1 in the No. 5 singles match to clinch the title.

With an NCAA Regional playoff position secured, the Clippers will wait until the spring to compete for a chance to win the NCAA Division II title.
