October 14, 2001 · MT Media Relations
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee pairing of Emily Vest and Tanja Buchheim claimed the doubles title in Flight C on Sunday during the final day of play at the MT Women's Fall Invitational.

Vest and Buchheim were leading UAB's Femke deBoer and Sjouke Liem, 3-1, before the UAB pairing retired because of an injury. Vest and Buchheim were the only Middle Tennessee players to make the finals during the three-day, 86-player event.

In singles action, Tennessee Tech's Lupita Hernandez defeated Monika Schmid of UAB, 6-2, 4-6, 10-3, to win the Flight A championship, while Natascha Immele won 6-2, 6-4 over Georgia State's Jovana Krsikara in the Flight B singles final.

In Flight C, Mississippi State's Yumi Ueda defeated Tennessee Tech's Maja Russinova, 6-3, 6-2, in the final match, and Karmelina Rivera of Tennessee Tech won 6-0, 6-3 in the Flight D championship match over UAB's Nadia Dellariciprete.

The remaining doubles matches were also played Sunday, with Immele and Schmid teaming for UAB to defeat Sabrina Lindeman and Monica Gonzalez-Gordo of Memphis, 8-5, in the Flight A finals. Krsikara and Maria Soerenson beat Robin Rae Gorman and Vanessa Gomez of Jacksonville State, 8-1, in the Flight B finals.

The Lady Raiders will next compete in the Vanderbilt Invitational October 19-21 in Nashville, including undefeated MT player Manon Kruse. The Vandy tournament will be used as a warmup before the ITA Rolex Regional Championships in Winston Salem, N.C., October 26-29.
