McNamara Takes Singles & Doubles TitlesOctober 12, 2003 · MT Media Relations
McNamara, who reached the singles finals in Flight B with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Kristin Noble of Memphis earlier Sunday, dropped the first set, 6-1, but came back in the second, breaking Nicola Slater of Southern Miss in her final two service games to take the set, 6-3.
In the super tiebreaker, Slater rebounded and started strong, taking 4-2 and 5-3 leads. Slater led 7-6 with two serves coming, but came apart at the seams after double-faulting twice in a row. McNamara took advantage, winning the final two points in the breaker to take a 10-7 decision and the victory.
In doubles action, McNamara and Klaschka broke Marlene Dirnstorfer and Viktoria Gruber of Memphis early and never looked back, with McNamara serving out the match for an 8-2 victory and the doubles title in Flight A.
The Lady Raiders continue fall action next weekend at the June Stewart Invitational in Nashville, Tenn.
