KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee's doubles duo of senior Natalie Araya and sophomore Anna Djananova posted its second win in as many days, while the Blue Raiders earned a pair of singles wins Saturday during day two action of the Tennessee-hosted St. Mary's Tournament at the Varsity Tennis Courts in Knoxville, Tenn.
Araya and Djananova picked up an 8-4 decision against Vanderbilt's Keilly Ulery and Megan Gornet in flight three play. Freshman Yuiri Nomoto again teamed with Tennessee's Maria Sorbello in flight two for an 8-3 victory against the Vanderbilt tandem of Catherine Newman and Hannah Blatt.
The two singles wins for Middle Tennessee came in flight six. Sophomore Alex Dachos knocked off ETSU's Diana Navrostska 6-2, 6-4. Blue Raider teammates Carla Nava and Taylor Coffey then squared off with Nava prevailing 7-6, 6-2.
Nava and Nomoto also participated in flight four and sophomore Marietta Bigus competed in flight five, but the trio all suffered losses including a pair to Wake Forest foes.
Scoring for the tournament is based on a 6-5-4-3-2-1 format for singles with the most points going to first flight winners and the fewest to the sixth flight victors. Points for doubles will be 3-2-1 based upon which flight the team is in as well. If players from two squads join to form a winning doubles team, the respective individuals will split the points. Upon the conclusion of the tournament, the top three individuals will be crowned.
The St. Mary's Tournament will conclude with final day action Sunday.
