WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Marshall Thundering Herd women's tennis team picked up multiple wins at the Wake Forest Fall Invitational on Friday.
The day was highlighted by the advancement of Marshall's top duo of Lynzee Kever and Kellie Schmitt into the tournament's final round in doubles.
Kever and Schmitt won two matches today defeating the Furman pair of Laura Gioia and Natasa Manojlovic, 8-3. In the semifinal the Herd marched on to victory over a Wake Forest tandem of Christina Tara and Sierra Poske, 8-3.
"It's great they (Kever and Schmitt) are in the doubles final," Marshall head coach John Mercer said. "They are playing a good team in the final and hopefully they can keep it going there."
Playing the doubles consolation round, Karolina Soor and Yulia Kashelkina took an 8-4 win over Wake's Jenna Loeb and Ana Jerman.
In singles the Herd picked up wins, led by Schmitt in Flight A, who defeated Wake's Tara in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4. In Flight B Lock picked up the Herd's lone victory with a straight set, 6-2, 6-1 victory over Furman's Manojlovic.
"In doubles I thought we played well at times," Mercer said. "In singles we are moving in a positive direction. We are really showing progress. We still have to get more consistent in our play."
