WICHITA, Kan. – The Bradley tandem of Corey Mattson and Carly Miles swept their two doubles matches and a pair of Braves singles splits, highlighting play during the second day of the Missouri Valley Conference Women's Tennis Individual Championships Saturday at Wichita State.
The live stats on the tourney central website mis-reported two Bradley results Saturday. Bradley freshman Lauren Watts originally was listed with a morning victory in the Flight 7 Singles draw, putting her into the championship match, but the scores were reversed from the actual results on the court. After suffering a 6-1, 6-1 loss to Drake's Jordan Eggleston in the morning semifinal, Watts dropped a 6-0, 6-0 decision to Southern Illinois’ Gisela Cairo Baza in the Flight 7 3rd-Place match to finish fourth overall. Similarly, the Flight 2 Doubles team of Corey Mattson and Carly Miles were reported to have lost a 9-8 decision to Evansville in the consolation semifinals. The Braves won that match to advance to the 5th-Place match.
Sophomore Monique Graf started her day with a 6-0, 6-0 win against Evansville’s Kelsey Edens in the Flight 7 consolation bracket. She fell in her consolation semifinal, though, suffering a 6-1, 6-1 loss to Wichita State’s Summer Schlotterback.
In addition to the singles action, the combination of Corey Mattson and Carly Miles swept their Saturday matches in Flight 2 Doubles, riding the momentum from their 9-8 win against Evansville to an 8-5 win against Drake in the bracket’s 5th-Place match.
Complete tournament results and updated draws are available online at the Tournament Central site, managed by Wichita State.
