Feb. 29, 2004
FORT WORTH, Texas - The No. 45 TCU women's tennis team (4-6, 0-1 C-USA) made short work in defeating the 47th-ranked Purdue Boilermakers (3-6) on Sunday morning at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center Indoor Courts. Only singles were played during the match, which was forced inside because of rainy weather.
Purdue scored the first point as Shawna Zuccarini defeated junior Karla Mancinas, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 5 singles. The Frogs then took charge of the action, winning the next three matches in straight sets. At No. 1 senior Paty Aburto topped Gretchen Haynor, 6-1, 6-3, while freshman Ana Cetnik defeated Alyssa Rodriguez, 6-1, 7-5, at four singles, and freshman Jenn Chay won a 7-6, 6-2 battle at No. 2 against Amy Walgenbach.
