MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Avi Kigel is a confident man these days. And well he should be. His women's tennis team rolled to another win Saturday.

Barry beat Valdosta State, 8-1, at Buccaneer Tennis Center, on a day that belonged to the Bucs.

"It was a big regional win for us," Kigel said. "Everybody played well. It was great energy."

Barry swept all the singles matches beginning with Vojka Lukic's 6-1, 6-1 win over Sara Braun at the No. 1 flight. Linda Fritschken continued to play good tennis beating Michelle Fischer, 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2. Julie Stas beat Juliana Boehm, 6-3, 6-3 at No. 3.

No. 24 Caroline Wendling defeated Alina Nagel, 6-4, 7-5, at No. 5 singles. No. 8 Mona Mansour survived a three-set super tiebreaker battle with Tina Trautmann, winning 6-7, 6-1, 10-5, at the No. 6 flight.

Olivia Matuszak beat Maja Ehses, 6-3, 6-1, at No. 4 singles.

Sarah Krohnen and Cristina Valladares lost an exciting No. 2 doubles match, 9-8, to Valdosta State's Braun and Niguel.

Lukic and Fritschken beat Fischer and Boehm, 8-6, at No. 1 pairs. Matuszak and Stas got by Ehses and Trautmann, 8-5, at No. 3 doubles.

"We knew Valdosta State was going to be a good regional team," Kigel said. "We're looking forward to continuing to keep it going."
