ROCKFORD, Ill. -
Northern Illinois' women's tennis team completed its third event of the fall season on Sunday, the Second Chance Regional, held at the Boylan Tennis Center in Rockford, Ill. Sunday had all of the finals and last consolation matches. By the end the matches on Sunday, two Huskies finished in the top three of their flights, those being Haley Dekkinga (Allegan, Mich./Allegan) and Cristina Alvarez (Zaragoza, Spain/Cristorey and Sagrado Corazon De Jesus).
Dekkinga had a finals match against Ali Dawson (MU) in the A Singles bracket, but she fell 6-1, 6-3 in the match. Still, she had the best finish of all Huskies, getting second place in the flight. Alvarez had a third place match against Claudia Negron (WGB) in the Singles B bracket, winning it 6-4, 6-1. Ilse Pacheco (San Luis Potosí, Mexico/Alma Patria) also had a third place match, hers coming against Sabrine Navarro (CSU) in the Singles D bracket, but she was unable to finish on top in that one. In doubles play, Alvarez and Pacheco took on Bolado/Huckabee (CSU) in a match for fifth place, but they ended up dropping the match, 8-2.
The Huskies have less than two weeks to prepare for the final event of the fall, the NIU Invitational. It's set to begin on Friday, October 25 at the Boylan Tennis Center in Rockford, Ill.
