Lewis makes up for GLVC title loss

  Zsofia Kranczicki was part of two points for Lewis, winning at No. 1 doubles and singles.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Lewis avenged its loss to Drury in the Great Lakes Valley Conference championship, as the Flyers breezed past the host Panthers for the 5-0 victory and the NCAA Division II Midwest Regional championship at the Cooper Tennis Complex on Monday evening.

"This is a huge win for our program and a great response after the disappointment from the GLVC tournament loss," Lewis head coach Brett Bridel said. "Again, we played solid doubles and this time we closed out all of our matches. It gave us a lot of momentum heading into singles."

With the win, Lewis (16-4) advances to the NCAA Division II Round of 16 for the second time in the past three seasons. The Flyers will take on Columbus State in Altamonte Springs, Florida, on May 14th. Drury ends the season with a record of 20-5.

Lewis' No. 1 doubles team of senior Zsofia Kranczicki and sophomore Megan Nguyen earned the 8-6 victory against Stefanie Monsch and Lara Muller. Kranczicki, who is No. 29 in the country in singles play, claimed the 6-3, 6-3 against Drury's No. 45 ranked Hadeil Ali at No. 1 singles.

At No. 2 doubles, Lewis senior Zsofia Lanstiak and freshman Ana Banic claimed the 8-3 win over Samanta Zambrano and Ali. Lanstiak went on to defeat Muller 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2 singles.

Lewis' final victory came at No. 3 doubles, as sophomore Jill Wetmore and senior Kendra Mills bested Drury's Katarina Kostovic and Natalia Kozel 8-1.
