TULSA, Okla.- Junior Montse Blasco Fernandez and freshman Summer Schlotterback fell in the qualifying bracket on Thursday afternoon in the USTA/ITA Central Region Championships at the Case Tennis Center.
Blasco Fernandez won her first round match-up against Maddie Johnson of Drake, 6-7, 6-3, 10-5. It was a familiar opponent for Montse, as she had just defeated Johnson two weeks ago to capture the flight six championship at the Missouri Valley Conference Individual Championships. The Tarragona, Spain native was unable to earn a spot into the main draw however, as she was defeated by Jessika Mozia of Minnesota in another tough three-set match, 6-3, 2-6, 11-9.
Schlotterback fell in her first-round match against Biliana Milosevska of Arkansas State, 6-3, 6-1. After moving into the consolation bracket, Schlotterback then fell to Ffion Davies of South Dakota State, 6-2, 6-1.
The main draw begins on Friday with singles and doubles play on the schedule. Results will be posted on GoShockers.com following each day's competition.
