Nebraska Whips Wyoming, 4-0

By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska women’s tennis team defeated the Wyoming Cowgirls 4-0 at the Sid and Hazel Dillon Tennis Center on Friday evening, bringing its official season record to 6-2.

The match began with doubles competition, where the Huskers steadily subdued the Cowgirls on all three courts.

Senior Katerina Matysova and junior Vasanti Shinde began the streak of Husker success with their 6-2 victory over Wyoming’s Myiah Scott and Milka Genkova.

Junior Paula Del Cueto Castillo and senior Brianna Lashway collected the second win of the evening and the doubles point for the Huskers with their 6-3 triumph over Cowgirls Elisa Koonik and Tessa van Der Ploeg.

In the next instant, sophomore pair Claire Reifeis and Hayley Haakenstad netted a third win for Nebraska in their doubles defeat of Wyoming’s Ana Tkachenko and Magdalena Stencel.

Despite neck-and-neck matches on a couple of the courts during singles play, the Huskers handily accumulated the three wins they needed to secure the evening’s victory.

Bringing a burst of energy for the Huskers with her early singles win was sophomore Jeannie Lozowski, who led a polished defeat of Scott, 6-0, 6-0.

Del Cueto Castillo collected the next singles win for Nebraska against Tkachenko, 6-1, 6-2, and Reifeis rounded up the match with her 6-3, 6-0 domination of Genkova.

Nebraska competes again on Sunday, Feb. 18, at 11 a.m. against the Wichita State Shockers.
