ND Women’s Tennis: Tefft and Krisik drop tourney match

Kate Grabarek | Friday, October 3, 2008

Senior Kelcy Tefft and junior Kali Krisik dropped their opening round match at the All-American Tournament in Palisades, California.

Tefft and Krisik won three qualifying matches against ranked opponents to get into the main draw of the tournament.

In the opening round, the No. 25 duo fell to Florida’s No. 6 Megan Alexander and Marritt Boonstra 8-4.

While Tefft and Krisik were in California, the rest of the team has been working with new assistant Julia Scaringe.

“We are in the middle of our fall competition so our focus is geared toward individual improvement,” Scaringe said. “Each player has different things they need to work on, so that by the time we get to the Big East they can come together as a team and win a title.”

The team hopes to continue it’s dominance under Scaringe, and returning head coach Jay Louderback again this season.

Next on the team’s schedule is regional qualifying on Oct. 23 in Lansing, Michigan.
