A pair of Arcadia University first years advanced out of Saturday’s quarterfinal round of singles play at the Middle Atlantic States Collegiate Athletic Corporation Individual Championship at the Hempfield Complex in Landisville, PA.

First years Megan Gillespie (Oro Valley, AZ) and Kate Wiseman (Milwaukee, WI) seemed to have little trouble with their first round opponents, advancing to Sunday’s semifinals with ease.  Gillespie defeated DeSales’ MaryKate Boylan 6-2, 6-2 at #3 Singles, while Wiseman defeated Lycoming’s Kelly Drinkard, 6-3, 6-3 at #4 Singles.  Nearly making it three Knights advancing in single play was senior Sarah Lapp(Rockville Centre, NY), taking  on Lycoming’s Rebecca Reynolds at #2 Singles.  Reynolds took set one 6-2 but Lapp reversed that with a 6-2 win in set two before eventually bowing to Reynolds 10-6 in the third set tie-breaker.

Junior Cory Mazen (Mendham, NJ) fell to Alvernia’s Jenny McKee 6-1, 6-2 in #1 Singles quarterfinals play.  Other quaterfinalists not advancing were junior Danielle Klim (Elizabethtown, PA), falling 6-2, 6-2 to Messiah’s Sarah Thow and junior Irina Samson (Waymart, PA), downed by Messiah’s Steph Knepper, 6-2, 6-4.  The duo of Sarah Lapp/Irina Samson at #1 Doubles ended their season together as Lebanon Valley’s Sarah Grodzinski and Shayna Heitzelman rolled past the Knights’ top doubles pairing 8-1.

Winners advancing out of Saturday’s Double quarterfinal play were Cory Mazen/Kate Wiseman and Megan Gillespie/Danielle Klim.  Mazen/Wiseman cruised by FDU’s Heather Gehman and Carrie Schwartz, 8-1 while Gillespie/Klim handed Misericordia’s Jennifer Spotl and Ellyn Wingert an 8-1 defeat.  Play continues today at the Hempfield Complex in Landisville, PA.
