Linder Becomes Program’s All-time Singles Wins Leader as Women’s Tennis Wins First Dual of Season

FLOURTOWN, Pa. – Elkanah Linder became the program's all-time singles wins leader, as the University of the Sciences women's tennis team won its first dual match of the season, 4-1 over Roberts Wesleyan, on Sunday afternoon at the Magrity Tennis Club. 

Also the program's all-time doubles wins leader (41), Linder unseated Victoria Quanq (2012-16) atop the record books with her 37th career victory. 

The senior defeated her third flight opponent 6-1, 6-3 for the milestone achievement. 

Sitting one win behind her is Karla Miletic, who won 6-3, 6-3 at No. 1 singles to tie Quanq with her 36th career victory. 

Miletic is now also tied for third in program history in career doubles wins, after the junior and Abbygail Gamarnik combined sealed the doubles point with a 6-3 decision at the first flight. 

Miletic tied Amanda Bedway with her 34th career doubles victory, which stands behind only Linder and Gamarnik (36).

Linder and partner Stephanie Mazurek won their first ever match paired together to begin the day, sweeping their No. 2 doubles opponents.

Mazurek then clinched USciences first dual win of 2018-19 with a three-set triumph at No. 4 singles, rebounding from a 4-6 second set loss to take command in a 6-1 third set. The freshman had won the first set 6-3.
