KALAMAZOO, Mich.  --- Eight members of the Notre Dame women's tennis team competed at the Western Michigan Super Challenge this weekend. Going in to the tournament, head coach Jay Louderback said the Irish would be trying out all new doubles teams in preparation for the upcoming spring season.

All three doubles teams entered into the main bracket won their first round matches with freshman Monica Robinson and sophomore Julie Vrabel making it to the semifinals before falling to Indiana's Garre and Fuhimoto, 6-5 (5).

The Irish also competed in three days of singles to close out their fall season. Freshman Jane Fennelly and Vrabel both went undefeated in singles for the weekend. Singles results from the weekend are posted below and doubles results are contained in the bracket linked above.

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. --- The rest of the Irish team headed down to Florida for the Dick Vitale Clay Court Classic. Seniors Jennifer Kellner, Britney Sanders and Julie Sabacinski as well as junior Molly O'Koniewski made the trip to play in the open singles and doubles tournament.

The Irish struggled in the singles bracket, as all four players lost in their opening round matches. Sabacinski and O'Koniewski defeated Lyn Yee Choo and Ana Gerbasi of East Tennessee State in the first round before falling in the quarterfinals. Kellner and Sanders made it to the semifinals before falling to Stesanie Mikez and Anki Wind of Memphis.

Results can be found here.

These two events conclude Notre Dame's fall season. The spring season will begin with a dual match against Western Michigan Jan. 18.
