USI advances two in ITA Great Lakes Regional

Day 1 Results

MIDLAND, Mich.—Two University of Southern Indiana women’s tennis players advanced to the second day of the ITA Great Lakes Region Friday.

Freshman Reilly Ackerman (Allendale, Illinois) and freshman Sara Wilhoite (Connersville, Indiana) both advanced after claiming wins in the first and second rounds of the tournament. Ackerman won both matches in straight sets, while Wilhoite was the ITA’s 15th seed and also had straight set victories in both the first and second rounds.

Ackerman moved her record to 6-1 overall, while Wilhoite moved to 5-2.

USI’s other players in singles action—sophomore Audra Bartelt (Jasper, Indiana) and junior Ashley Rees (Vincennes, Indiana)—lost their respective matches. Bartelt dropped out in the second round after winning in straight sets over Hillsdale College’s Julie Emmenecker in the first round. She fell to the seventh-seed from Michigan Tech University’s, Aijana Otunchieva in straight sets.

Otunchieva also knocked Rees out in the first round with 6-4, 6-3 victory.

In doubles competition, the Screaming Eagles moved Bartelt and Rees into the second round with an 8-4 victory, but saw the team of Ackerman and Wilhoite lose in the first round. Bartelt and Rees were knocked out in the second round finishing USI’s run in doubles action.

Ackerman and Wilhoite will both attempt to remain alive as the ITA Great Lakes Regional continues Saturday.
