Sioux Falls, SD—The Oral Roberts women’s tennis team earned the fourth and final seed in the Summit League tournament next Friday with a 4-0 victory over Centenary at the Sioux Empire Fitness Complex this past Saturday afternoon.

ORU finished tied with Oakland and IUPUI with a 4-4 conference record, but broke into the postseason thanks to Summit tie-breaker policies.

Lina Semenova started off #1 singles action in style, exploding for a perfect 6-0, 6-0 win over Centenary’s Isadora Bickham.

Ekaterina Kondrashova rolled 6-1, 6-0 in #3 singles, while Rachel Scroggs cruised 6-3, 6-0 over Catlin Orschel at the 5 spot.

The Golden Eagles also controlled both doubles matches, as the #1 team of Semenova and Scroggs earned an 8-1 win over Bickham and Holden Penney.

Tori Dollar and Kondrashova teamed up to shutout the Centenary duo of Michelle Gaubert and Holly Clark 8-0 at #2 doubles.

ORU wraps up the regular season with a combined mark of 5-11. The Golden Eagles will now travel to Fort Wayne, Indiana for round one of the Summit League Championships next Friday at 9:00 a.m. ORU will face #1 seed, IPFW.
