MALIBU, Calif. - The Pepperdine women's tennis team concluded play at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships on Saturday with a 6-0 win over host Wisconsin in consolations at the A.G. Nielsen Tennis Stadium in Madison, Wis. After falling in the first round to Georgia Tech, the Waves picked up two wins in the consolation bracket for a 2-1 record at the Indoors, improving their overall record to 4-2.
Pepperdine earned the doubles point after getting wins from No. 2 and No. 3 doubles. Bianca Dulgheru and Katia Sabate easily defeated Chelsea Nusslock and Morgan Tuttle, 8-1, while Anete Bandere and Jillian Braverman won 8-5 over Kim Roberts and Nicole Beck. At No. 1 doubles, Liz Carpenter and Kaylan Caiati defeated Sylvia Kosakowski and Eva Dickes 8-5.
The Waves swept the Badgers (0-3) in singles for five straight points. Kosakowski finished first, defeating Carpenter 6-2, 6-4, while Sabate followed with a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Nusslock. Bandere clinched the win for Pepperdine with her 6-4, 6-2 victory over Tuttle. Braverman handed Erin Jobe a 6-3, 6-4 win, while Tania Rice finished the match up with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Roberts.
Due to injuries on both teams, only five singles matches were played, therefore making No. 6 singles a double default.
Appearing in their 14th ITA National Team Indoor Championships, the Waves improve to 22-20 overall.
Pepperdine returns to Malibu on Saturday, Feb. 10 as it hosts Fresno State in an 11 a.m. match.
