Codognotto, Beck advance in consolation bracket

TUCSON, Ariz.— Barbara Codognotto had a busy day Tuesday at the NJCAA women’s tennis championships. Busy and successful.

The sophomore from Brazil played three matches – one in singles and two in doubles – winning all three. That advanced her to the semifinals of the consolation singles and to the finals of the consolation doubles with teammate Karli Beck.

In fact, Codognotto did not lose a single game all day – going a combined 24-0.

Codognotto won her only match in singles, defeating Olivia Longoria of Jacksonville College (Texas) in easy fashion, 8-0. That win came in the consolation quarterfinals of No. 3 singles.

The win moves her into the semifinals of the consolation bracket where she will take on Kaitlyn Seldal of Moraine Valley (Ill).

Codognotto then moved to the doubles portion of the tournament where she and Beck, a freshman from Claflin, had a great day at No. 2 doubles.

The duo breezed to an 8-0 win in the consolation quarterfinals over Ashlyn Berogran and Gabriela Trujillo of Sauk Valley (Ill), moving them into semifinal action immediately afterwards.

The duo ended their day in the same fashion as they swept through Mary Owens and Courtney Moore of Snead State (Ala) 8-0.

That moved them into the finals where they will take on Desiree Curiel and Michelle Foumier of Mesa (Ariz).

The Cougars No. 3 doubles team saw their tournament come to an end Tuesday as Kelly Brauer and Stephanie Langer lost in the consolation quarterfinals. Brauer, a sophomore from Dodge City, and Langer, a freshman from Great Bend, lost 8-3 to Christina Long and Jessica Vanoosten of Sauk Valley to end their season.
