WACO, Texas – The Lamar doubles team of Helene Czudek and Carolina Salas saw their run through the consolation bracket come to a halt on Monday as the duo fell to North Texas’ Valentina Starkova and Barbora Vykydalova in 8-5 fashion at Hurd Tennis Center on the campus of Baylor University.
“We had our chances, but we didn’t take advantage of the situation later in the match,” head coach David Wong said. “We were up 3-0 and had three opportunities to pull ahead and create some space. We just couldn’t make it happen, and it changed the momentum of the match.”
Czudek and Salas were knocked out of the main draw early in the event, but battled it out through the consolation bracket, beating teams from Texas, Sam Houston State and Texas State along the way.
The match closed out play for the Lady Cardinals at the ITA Regional, and LU will continue its fall season later this week at the Southern Miss Halloween Invitational.
