Sobieski, Kelly Garner Wins Over Belmont
Elizabeth Sobieski picked up one of Valpo's two singles wins on Saturday.

The bottom of the Valparaiso University tennis lineup enjoyed victories as Elizabeth Sobieski (Muskego, Wis. / Muskego) and Lillian Kelly (Fullerton, Calif. / Fullerton Union) were both in the win column on Saturday afternoon, but visiting Belmont took the match 5-2 at The Courts of Northwest Indiana.  

How It Happened

  • Kelly was the first singles player off the court, dispatching Belmont’s Aly Getty 6-4, 6-2 at No. 6.
  • Sobieski’s win required a comeback, as she battled back from dropping the first set to take the No. 5 match from Hana Sokolovic 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.
  • Belmont prevailed on the other four singles courts. The tightest of those came at No. 2, where Olivia Czerwonka (Kenosha, Wis. / Saint Joseph Catholic Academy) won the middle set in lopsided fashion 6-1 but dropped tight first and third sets, both by 6-4 scores.
  • The Bruins won the No. 1 and No. 3 doubles matches to take the doubles point.

Inside the Match

  • Kelly extended her winning streak to four matches and improved to 4-0 in dual matches and 3-0 in MVC action.
  • Sobieski secured her 14th win of the season.

Up Next

The Beacons (9-10, 0-4 MVC) will host UNI on Sunday at 10 a.m. The match will be played indoors at The Courts of NWI.
