Getz Wins Top Singles Title at AMCC Championship
10/20/2002

ERIE, PA - Sophomore Kirsten Getz (Beall/Frostburg, Md.) capped another outstanding season by winning the No. 1 singles title at the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Women's Tennis Championships Saturday afternoon at the Pennbriar Tennis Center.

Getz, who entered the tournament with a 14-0 career record versus AMCC opponents, continued her domination Saturday.

She had little trouble in the semifinals, defeating La Roche's Amanda Tyler, 6-1, 6-0, and easily downed Penn State Behrend's Lennys Redondo, 6-2, 6-2, to earn first-team All-AMCC honors for the second straight year.

Getz, who captured the AMCC No. 2 singles championship last season, is now 21-3 in singles play over her two-year collegiate career.

Junior Aimee Mendoza (Great Mills/Frostburg, Md.) earned second-team All-AMCC honors after advancing to the title match of the No. 4 flight. She defeated Penn State Behrend's Margaret Venema, 6-1, 6-2, in the semifinals before falling to Sarah Obermeier of Penn State Altoona, 6-0, 6-0, in the championship.

Freshman Jennifer Zviman (Aberdeen/Aberdeen, Md.), sophomore Susan Adkins (Archbishop Spalding/Millersville, Md.), junior Rachel Sooy (Arundel/Crofton, Md.) and freshman Ewelina Blachewicz (Patterson/Baltimore, Md.) each fell in the first round, as did all three FSU doubles teams.

Penn State Altoona won its second straight conference title, winning five singles and two of the three doubles flights for 15 points. Host Penn State Behrend was second with nine points, and FSU was third with three points. La Roche failed to score a point and placed fourth.

Frostburg State closes out its season Tuesday at Division II Shepherd at 4:00 pm.
