Miletic and Williams Win Twice in Women’s Tennis’ Narrow 4-3 Defeat to West Chester

WEST CHESTER, Pa. – The University of the Sciences women's tennis team narrowly missed out on extending its win streak to three matches, as the Devils fell to West Chester 4-3 in non-conference action on Friday afternoon. 

Karla Miletic and Myka Williams won comfortably at No. 1 doubles, 6-2, for their second consecutive victory together, but the Golden Rams would take the doubles point with wins at the second and third flight, which included a tight 6-4 result over Stephanie Mazurek and Danielle Paran at No. 3 doubles.

After West Chester won at No. 6 singles to take a 2-0 lead, Miletic and Mazurek both swept their respective first and third flight opponents to momentarily tie the score at 2-2, but the Golden Rams would close out the victory with decisions at No. 4 and No. 5 singles, the latter of which was a 2-6, 6-4, 6-0 comeback over Myra Anwar

Williams was on the right side of a three-setter at No. 2 singles, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3, to continue her perfect start to the season at 3-0.  

Miletic's win was her second straight, while Mazurek is now an even 3-3 on the young season. 

At 2-0 in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) for the third year in a row, University of the Sciences will look to begin league play 3-0 for the first time in at least 10 years when it hosts Caldwell tomorrow, Sept. 28, at 12 p.m.
