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.
