Mrcela & Prosenjak Capture Viking Invitational Doubles Championship

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cleveland State women's tennis team wrapped up action at the Viking Invitational Sunday, with the tandem of Klara Mrcela and Lara Prosenjak capturing the doubles championship.

"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.
