March 26, 2002
RALEIGH, N.C. - The NC State women's tennis team was defeated at home for the second time in three days Monday afternoon, despite a number of close points. The Hoosiers topped the Wolfpack 5-2, dropping NC State to an overall record of 6-9 on the season. High spots for NC State included two wins in singles action by Katrina Gildemeister at the No. 1 position and Danielle Stadddelmann at the No. 5 spot.
Gildemeister picked up a win by defeating IU's Amanda Field 6-2, 6-3. Staddelmann's stellar play was good enough to hold Freshman Hoosier Dominika Walterova to four points on the afternoon and mark a 6-1, 6-3 victory in straight sets.
Sophomore Jennifer Jassawalla had an advantage of 6-1 in the second set to force a third with Karie Schlukebir. The rubber game was decided late with a 10-8 decision in Schlukebir's favor.
Doubles action for the day was just as close. In No. 1 doubles, Gildemeister and partner Kristen Nicholls were up 7-4 early before falling to Linda Tran and Schlukebir, 9-7. Despite a win by Landis Strader and Loni Worsley in the No. 3 match versus Field and Jessica Levin, the Hoosiers clinched the doubles point with a win at No. 2 by Inga Radel and Walterova, 8-6.
The Wolfpack will return to action this Thursday when they travel north to Richmond, Va. to face the Richmond Spiders. The match was originally scheduled to be played earlier in the month but was post-poned due to rain. The match is set to begin at 2:00 p.m. Other changed to the schedule include a cancellation of the match scheduled for March 29 with Georgia State. The match will not be rescheduled.
