"I thought we played another great round of doubles today, we came out aggressive on all three courts, and overall this weekend we had a great doubles record, which was awesome to see," head coach Frank Polito said. "I thought we fought really hard in singles, and despite coming up a little short on some courts, I thought the fight and energy was there from start to finish. We will now have a couple weeks off from competition, which gives us some time to work on some things in practice and continue our improvement this fall."
Mrcela and Prosenjak finished the weekend with a 2-1 record, becoming the third Cleveland State duo to win the doubles championship over the four-year history of the Viking Invitational.
The Vikings picked up a pair of doubles wins on the final day of action, as Gaby Schoenberg and Kateryna Avram earned a 6-4 victory, and Prinkle Singh and Blanche Lenoan notched a 6-3 win against UConn.
Lenoan also picked up Cleveland State's lone singles win on Sunday, earning a 6-1, 6-2 straight-set victory over Akron's Holland Long.
Cleveland State will return to action later this month, when they take part in the Akron Shootout October 25-27.
