Mazurek Wins Seventh Straight Singles Match in Women’s Tennis’ Loss to Defending CACC Champion Godley-Beacom

PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences women's tennis team pushed defending Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) champion Goldey-Beacom to the brink in doubles play, and Stephanie Mazurek won her seventh straight singles match, as the Devils fell to the Lightning 1-6 on Sunday afternoon at the Hamlin/Hecht Center.

After splitting the first two sets, 7-6 (1), 1-6, Mazurek and her fifth flight opponent went down to the wire in a super tiebreaker, with the freshman holding on to win by the narrowest of margins 10-8.

The rookie remains a perfect 5-0 in CACC play, while improving to 8-3 overall and 7-1 in dual action.

The afternoon began with two close doubles matches, both of which Goldey-Beacom held on to win. 

Karla Miletic and Abbygail Gamarnik forced a tiebreaker at No. 1 doubles to a duo they lost to 8-1 in the Round of 16 at the ITA East Regionals. Their opponents would pull away to win 7-3 in the tiebreaker.

At the second flight, Elkanah Linder and Danielle Paran fell 4-6. 

Miletic then fell just short in singles play in yet another match to go down to the wire in a super tiebreaker. The junior rebounded from a 1-6 first set loss to win the second set 6-4, before coming up just short in the super tiebreaker 10-12.

University of the Sciences will make up its postponed match from Saturday against Caldwell tomorrow at a site and time to be determined, before hosting Post in the First Round of the CACC Tournament on Tuesday at 2 p.m.
