WICHITA, Kan.- The No. 58 Wichita State women's tennis team will head to Omaha, Neb. to participate in the Missouri Valley Conference Championship April 27-29.
The Shockers (18-5, 7-0) are coming off a very successful regular season where they won the MVC regular season title for the fourth year in a row. The Shocker women did not lose a singles match during conference play and only gave up one point to their opponents, the doubles point against Evansville, during the conference season.
Individually, all of the Shockers ended the regular season on multiple match singles winning streaks, and will look to continue that success into the MVC Tournament.
Reigning MVC Athlete of the Week Veronika Blaskova is currently on a ten-match winning streak and has an overall singles record of 21-11 on the season. Senior Lutfiana Budiharto is ranked No. 82 by the ITA, with an overall singles record of 22-5 on the season.
The Shockers are the number one seed for the tournament and will play at 9 a.m. on Friday against number eight-seeded Bradley. The Shockers defeated the Braves 7-0 in Peoria, Ill. earlier in the season.
If the Shockers are able to get by the Braves, they will play the winner of Southern Illinois/Evansville on Saturday at 9 a.m.
