Seminoles Close Out the Furman Fall Classic

Sept. 29, 2013



GREENVILLE, S.C.  –  The Florida State women’s tennis team finished its first fall tournament of the 2013-14 season with two players advancing in to the finals of  flights one and two singles at the Furman Fall Classic.

The three-day event at the Mickel Tennis Center came to a close on Sunday with (No.46) Daneika Borthwick and Kerrie Cartwright competing for bracket championships.

“Kerrie and Daneika had an excellent run in the tournament,” head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “They competed their hearts out to get to the finals of their draws and in doubles, they started out beating the 16th-ranked Alabama team to lose in an epic battle against the sixth-ranked Vanderbilt team.”

Borthwick played in the finals of flight one against Sydney Campbell of Vanderbilt, however Borthwick fell in a tight 7-5, 6-4 decision.

“Daneika was going head-to-head with her opponent,” Hyde said. “She was attacking and pressuring the ball to play through the cracks of the opponent’s weaknesses, only to lose 7-5, 6-4 in a two-hour, intense pressure match.”

After playing a record of 2-1 in singles this weekend, the Cumbria, England native will travel cross-country to compete in the qualifying rounds of the Riviera/ITA-All American in Pacific Palisades, Calif. which are held on Oct. 1-2 at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.

In flight two, Erin Routliffe defeated Cartwright, 6-3, 6-3. Cartwright was also 2-1 on the weekend in singles, picking a win over a ranked opponent.

“Kerrie worked really hard,” Hyde said. “She made the right plays to put herself into a position to win. She had a few chances in the second set, but the opponent really stepped up her game to close out the match.”

Kristina Schleich earned a win in flight three on Sunday, defeating Annette Dohanics of Iowa, 6-4, 6-2 for sixth place in the bracket.

“Overall, this being the first tournament of the year, they really put everything out there,” Hyde said. “They implemented a lot of the things we’ve been working on and I could not be more proud of them.”
