    CARBONDALE. Ill. — The 2011 State Farm MVC Women’s Individual Tennis Championships concluded today in Cedar Falls, Iowa, with Southern Illinois bringing home two titles.

    The Saluki duo of junior Melanie Delsart and sophomore Korey Love came back as No. 1 doubles champions while sophomore Anita Lee defended her No. 5 singles title.

    "Melanie and Korey dominated the whole tournament. They were never close in any of their matches," said head coach Audra Nothwehr. "Anita really fought to win. She was very determined.”

    Also in doubles action, Lee and junior Anastacia Simons finished second at the No. 3 spot.

    In singles play, Delsart finished second at the No. 1 spot while junior Jennifer Dien took third at No. 2 and Simons finished second at No. 7. 


     

     

    "These are the best finishes we have had in the last five years," Nothwehr said.

    The Salukis are back in action next Sunday, Oct. 16 when they compete in the SIU Fall Classic.
