Which Lynn Will it Be? Confalonieri and Ioana Top Teammates for ITA Title
Lakeland, Fla. – Ioana Ivan is heading back to the ITA Small College Championships but this time with a new partner after her and Valentina Confalonieri defeated Andrea Berkova and Kim Przeslowski in an all Lynn University finals at the USTA/ITA South Regional Tournament. This is the second consecutive year the Fighting Knights will send a team to the Small College Championships.
Playing a best two-out-of-three, Confalonieri/Ivan had little problems with Berkova/Przeslowski, knocking off their Blue & White teammates in straight sets, 6-0, 6-1. Last season, Ivan partnered with Sabine Krause to win the South Region Tournament.
Confalonieri and Ivan will now compete at the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships, held October 11-14 at the Copeland-Cox Tennis Center in Mobile, Alabama. The USTA/ITA National Small College Championships are comprised of the eight regional champions (and/or at-large selections) from NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community Colleges.
