Amy Leui returns a serve during the Midwestern State University Invitational this past weekend.

It was Mother Nature who had the final say at the North Central Texas College tennis team’s second tournament of the season, as the Lady Lions played just a portion of their matches at the Midwestern State University Invitational at Wichita Falls.

In Flight 1 singles, NCTC’s Georgina Gosen fell to Midwestern State 6-0, 7-5 in her opening match before advancing to the consolation semifinals. Rain halted play before Gosen’s next match.

Playing in Flight 2 singles, Marianna Vargas took her opening match 7-5, 7-6 (3) against Schreiner University and fell to Central Oklahoma 6-0, 6-1 in the quarterfinals. Alexandria Rodriguez found similar results in Flight 2 singles play, beating Seminole State 6-2, 3-6, 10-4 in her first match before falling in the quarterfinals to Midwestern State 6-1, 6-0.

Amy Leiu reached the semifinals before play was stopped in Flight 4 singles. Leui took her first match 6-1, 6-0 against McMurry University and beat Central Oklahoma 7-6, 5-7, 10-5 in the quarterfinals. Also in Flight 4, Katy Foster fell 6-5, 6-3 in her first match to Dallas Baptist University and beat Seminole State 6-0, 6-1 in the consolation round. Sheridan McKissick dropped her opening match 6-4, 6-2 to Northeastern State, then lost a highly contested three-set match to Southeastern Oklahoma State 7-5, 2-6, 9-11.

Flight 5 singles saw Lady Lion Elizabeth Arens drop her opening round match 6-3, 6-2 to Cameron University. Arens rebounded with a 6-1, 6-1 win against Seminole State in her consolation round. Ludivine Varga had a similar performance, losing her opening match to Southwest Baptist 6-2, 6-0, but taking her consolation match 6-3, 6-3 against McMurry.

Most double matches were cut short by the rain. In Flight 1 doubles, Gosen and Rodriguez dropped their opening match to Cameron University. Vargas and Foster won their first Flight 2 match against Southeastern Oklahoma before play was stopped. Leiu and McKissick lost their only match 8-2 to Tyler Junior College, while Arens and Varga fell to Midwestern 8-1.
