As the final day of the Cal Nike Invitational came to a close, the Minnesota women's tennis team continued to play consistent against its competitors. Three girls remained active in singles play, including Tereza Brichacova who worked her way into the championship finals.

Brichacova maintained her role as the Gophers' top threat of the tournament, beginning her day with a fight against the No. 2 seed Marina Nikolic. Brichacova defeated Nikolic by scores of 6-1, 6-4 to advance. In the event finals, she faced No. 1 Cassi Estlander and played a match to a 0-5 score before retiring.

Doron Muravnik and Yuliana Umanets each played one final match of the weekend. Muravnik came away with a 6-1, 6-4 win, while Umanets fell 6-0, 6-1.

"Overall, it was a great weekend for these Gophers," said head coach Chuck Merzbacher. "We played strong competition well. Our hard work this fall has really paid off. We looked strong
and fit."

The Gophers are back in action this week at the ITA All-American Championships in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
