The Minnesota women’s tennis team piled up four singles wins on the second day of its final day of the tournament of the season Saturday. Jessika Mozia, Julia Courter, Kendall Heitzner, and Yuliana Umanets each came up victorious at the Kitty Harrison Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C.
On the day, the Gophers went 4-4 in singles and 0-3 in doubles. They are now 6-10 in singles and 1-7 in doubles through two days of play at the tournament.
Umanets and Heitzner both improved to 2-0 on the weekend with their wins, while Courter and Mozia moved to 1-1. Mozia and Umanets now share the team lead in fall singles wins with nine apiece.
Mozia, Heitzner, and Umanets downed Frida Jansaker, Viviana Stavreva, and Tolley Rice of Elon, respectively, in straight sets. Courter topped Bryn Khoury of the Phoenix 10-3 in a super tiebreaker after opening the match with a 6-3 set win and a 6-2 loss.
Play in North Carolina, and Minnesota’s fall season with it, concludes Sunday with a round of singles.
Following the weekend, the Gophers will not play until the spring season begins in January. The Gophers season will start Jan. 19 when it welcomes both Eastern Michigan and Northern Iowa to the Baseline Tennis Center for matches.
