            Sajevic needed a tie-breaker to win the first set before posting a 7-6 (4), 6-1 victory over the Titans’ Aneta Maricevic.  Detroit (8-10, 4-3 Horizon League) won the other five matches in straight sets though.

            Zelijka Minic was leading Jenny Schwartz (Aurora, Ill./West Aurora H.S.) 6-1, 2-1 when Schwartz retired at second singles.  Annie Moore posted a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Molly Keifer (Richmond, Ind./Richmond H.S.) at the third spot and Svetlana Flankova was a 6-3, 6-1 winner against Julie Wingstrom (Dallas Lake, Ind./Westview H.S.) and number four singles.  Erin Weldon added a 6-2, 6-0 win against Christine Antrobus (Fort Wayne, Ind./Homestead H.S.) at fifth singles while Stephanie Hill topped Laura Lawson (Thorntown, Ind./Western Boone H.S.) 6-0, 6-2 at the bottom of the lineup.

            Detroit got on the scoreboard first sweeping the doubles point as well.  Minic and Moore downed Schwartz and Keifer 8-1 at the top of the lineup.  Maricevic and Weldon were 8-5 victors over Sajevic and Wingstrom while Flankova and Hill topped Antrobus and Lawson by the same score.

            Valparaiso (2-13, 0-6) will close out the home portion of the 2008 season on Saturday morning as the Crusaders host Cleveland State at the Valparaiso University Tennis Complex.  First serve is set for 10 a.m.
