WINFIELD, Kan. (Results – PDF) – The Southwestern College women's tennis team claimed three flight championships, and three third place finishes on the final day of the 2017 Tiger-Jinx Invitational. The two-day event concluded Saturday at the T.H. Vaughan Tennis Center.

Sophomore Taylor Crawford notched a pair of singles wins to claim the Flight C Singles title. Crawford opened her day with a straight-set semifinal win over Sterling's Janae Ryan (6-4, 7-6 (6)), then followed suite with a 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory over Cowley's Mariana Rodriguez in the championship match to finish her event with a perfect 4-0 singles record.

Southwestern's two other flight championships came in doubles play. The freshman tandem of McMinn/Kindred opened its Saturday with a straight-set (6-0, 6-3) win over the North Central Texas team of Orozco/Ariza, then claimed the Flight A Doubles championship with a 6-3, 3-0, ret. win over North Central Texas' Zilles/Aguillar.

It was a similar story in Flight C, where Thompson/DeQuasie posted a 6-3, 6-4 win over John Brown's Berry/Griffin. The Lady Builder tandem then went on to defeat Cowley's Coker/Romero in a 6-3, 6-1 decision to claim the flight title.

Freshman Colby Fugit took third place in the Flight D Singles draw. Fugit dropped her semifinal match to Cowley's Brianna Berryman (6-4, 6-2), but responded in the third place match to defeat John Brown's Grace Cusick in a 7-5, 6-2 decision.

Fellow freshman McCall DeQuasie faced a similar situation in Flight E. After dropping a 6-2, 6-0 contest to top-seeded Ketherpal (North Central Texas), DeQuasie ousted John Brown's Katie Sandeno, 6-1, 6-4 in the third place match.

Anna Mankoski and Taylor Crawford claimed third place honors in the Flight B Doubles draw. The Lady Builder duo dropped their semifinal match to Cowley's Rodriguez/Macheli (6-1, 6-1), but bounced back to defeat Hastings' Fortunato/Flaherty, 7-6 (6), 6-0 in the third place match.

Southwestern will host its next tournament next weekend. The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Fall Championship will begin Friday at the T.H. Vaughan Tennis Center.
