Nava wins fourth straight singles match
Blue Raiders battle conditions FridayMarch 25, 2011 · Athletic Communications
"We did not have good focus once we moved indoors," head coach Melissa Schaub said. "Conditions were not ideal all day, but we have to learn to adapt and be prepared for anything. Now our attention turns to Sunday."
Nava picked up the lone Middle Tennessee (5-8) point with a 7-6, 6-4 triumph over the Pioneers' Gabriella Boboc at the No. 3 singles position.
She also paired with classmate Alex Dachos for a victory at No. 3 doubles, as the pair handed Emma Isberg and Steffi Rath an 8-5 setback after the point had already been awarded to Denver (5-10).
The Blue Raiders will look to regroup at 10 a.m. Sunday when they play host to South Alabama at the on-campus Buck Bouldin Tennis Center. The match has been moved ahead three hours to accommodate the Jaguars' travel plans back to Mobile.
