Women's Tennis Sweeps Past Marquette
April 21, 2018

MILWAUKEE – Now, this is more like the DePaul women’s program we have all come to know and admire.

The return of No. 1 singles standout Patricia Lancranjan from illness and Keisha Clousing from injury sparked the Blue Demons to a resounding 6-0 road victory over BIG EAST rival Marquette on Saturday.

DePaul (7-10, 2-2 in the BIG EAST) dropped the opening doubles match at Helfaer Tennis Stadium before rebounding to win the next two doubles contests and then sweeping five consecutive singles matches.

The tandem of Lancranjan and Clousing was reunited for the first time in three weeks, commemorating Clousing’s return with a 6-2 victory over the Golden Eagles’ No. 1 doubles team.

Aspasia Avgeri and Milica Tesic clinched the doubles point with a 6-4 win over Marquette’s No. 3 doubles pair.

Lancranjan at No. 1 singles, Avgeri at No. 2, No. 3 Marija Jovicic, No. 4 Alina Kuzmenkova and No. 5 Tesic made it a 6-0 shutout.

Lancranjan, Kuzmenkova and Tesic won in straight sets. Avgeri prevailed 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 in her duel while Jovicic dropped the opening set 2-6 before bouncing back 6-2, 6-3.

It sets the stage for the Blue Demons’ last match of the regular season and BIG EAST finale against Xavier at 2 p.m. Sunday.

It will be a memorable day for Lancranjan in her final home performance at Lakeshore Sport & Fitness. The senior from Brasov, Romania is 11-3 in the dual-match season, 13-5 overall and 4-0 in conference.



Lancranjan has an impressive 70-45 career record in singles play including 13-4 in the BIG EAST.
