Murray State women's tennis players Natalie Slezakova and Paola Campigotto won their respective flights at the Missouri Valley Conference Individual Championships to take the first MVC conference titles in Murray State history. Slezakova earned the flight six singles championship while Campigotto took the flight seven title.

The Racers were the only team to win two flights in singles play. Slezakova took down individuals from Valparaiso, Drake, and Illinois-Chicago in route to her title while Campigotto earned wins over Belmont, Drake, and UIC.

Slezakova took her championship match 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) and Campigotto won her title in comeback fashion winning 1-6, 7-5, 6-1.

"We had chances in every flight from top to bottom, the girls did a very good job to put themselves in position to succeed," said coach Jorge Caetano. "Very happy for Natalie and Paola being able to bring a championship home but across the board we know we were very competitive."
