Gill-Morlis Shines At Bowling Green Invitational
Sept. 19, 2006
Bowling Green, Ohio- Junior Grace Gill-Morlis had a weekend to remember as the ten-time Horizon League champion UIC women's tennis team opened the 2006 fall tournament campaign at the BGSU Fall Invitational hosted by Bowling Green.
Gill-Morlis dominated her flight, downing Xavier's Jill Ducro (6-2, 6-3), Akron's Kerry Langworthy (6-2, 6-0) and Toledo's Maha Guirguis (1-6, 7-5, 6-2) to win the Flight 3 championship.
The Lima, Peru native then teamed with senior Callan Smith to defeat duos from Toledo, Xavier and Horizon League rival Cleveland State to emerge as the Flight 1 doubles champions.
Smith rebounded from a first-round loss in the Flight 1 singles bracket to win her final two singles contests of the tourney.
The weekend action also featured the UIC debuts of Ulrikke VonUbisch, Amy Jellish and Jenna Reisch.
