Lady Cards compete at SFA
Sept. 28, 2012
“It was an up-and-down day, but overall, I think the girls learned a lot today,” head coach David Wong said. “There were bright spots and not-so-bright spots, but it was a productive first day even if the scores don’t reflect that.”
Dashutina rebounded from an early 6-2, 7-5 loss to Polina Konop of Northwestern State in Flight A to come back and knock off Sam Houston State’s Sheridan Currie in 7-6, 6-2 fashion. The junior will play in the fifth-place match on Saturday against another Bearkat, Imke Jagau.
In doubles, SHSU’s Nadia Dubyanskaya and Tatyana Postnikova fell victim to the Lady Card duo in the first round of Flight A as LU pulled out an 8-6 victory. However, Dasutina and Bogdan would not be as successful later in the day, falling 8-4 to Lara Pujol and Anastasia Surkova of McNeese and 9-7 to Konop and Natalya Krutova of NSU.
In Flight B singles, Bogdan lost in the first round to ULM’s Silvia Turnova 6-1, 6-0 and in the second to Pujol 6-4, 6-4. She will return to action Saturday against Valeria Terentyeva of host Stephen F. Austin.
