Against Cincinnati, Kellner and Voscekova dropped one game in doubles en route to an 8-1 triumph over Witte/Slynko. Singles saw the senior captain defeat Lindsey Lonergan 6-1, 7-6.
Kellner plays the final home match of her career this Friday at 4 p.m. against Pittsburgh. She will retire with the third-highest singles winning percentage in MU history.
