From staff reports
It may not have needed her Sunday,
but the Nebraska women’s tennis team
is happy to have No. 1 player Sandra
Noetzel back from injury.
The senior didn’t show any signs of
rust as she easily overcame a two-match
lay-off to defeat Wyoming’s Sarah Key
6-3, 6-1. It was the 87™ win of her
career. And the win was one of nine on
Sunday for the Cornhuskers as they
swept UW 9-0 at the Woods Tennis
Center on Sunday.
Though it was a commanding vic
tory, senior captain Gina Pelazini was
happy to have her doubles partner by
her side again.
“It’s great to have her back,” said
Pelazini, who scored 6-2,6-3 in her sin
gles match and 8-4 in doubles with
Noetzel. “She is a big part of the team.”
Ndali Ijomah, Maria Fernandez,
Katarina Balan and Amy Frisch all v^on
singles matches in straight sets as the
Huskers moved to 4-1 on the seasbn,
while the Cowboys dropped to 2-4.
