Valparaiso saw its two match win streak come to an end on Sunday afternoon as the Crusaders dropped a 7-0 decision to Bradley at the Homewood-Flossmoor Racquet Club in Flossmoor, Ill.

The Braves opened the match winning all three doubles contests by 8-3 scores.  Kristin Zakiewicz (Bristol, Ind./Northridge H.S.) and Megan Bartels (Grand Rapids, Mich./Catholic Central H.S.) fell at the top of the lineup to Corey Mattson and Sarah Rodefeld while Stephanie York (Elkhart, Ind./Jimtown H.S.) and Kaitlyn Hamel (Lakewood, Colo./Green Mountain H.S.) lost to Adele Henke and Carly Miles at the second spot.  Michele Fredlake (South Bend, Ind./Saint Joseph’s H.S.) and Lauren Kammerer (Valparaiso, Ind./Valparaiso H.S.) were downed by Meredith McDonagh and Elizabeth Przystawski at the third spot.

In singles play, York forced a match tie-break for the third set at number three against  Przystawski before falling 6-4, 2-6, 12-10.  Bradley (2-5) swept the other matches in straight sets.  Rodefeld won the first set 6-2 against Bartels before the Crusader freshman retired due to injury at number one singles.  Hamel fell 6-1, 6-1 at the second spot to Henke while Fredlake dropped a 6-1, 6-0 decision at number four against McDonagh.  At number five singles, Zakiewicz fell 6-2, 7-6 (4) against Mattson while Kammerer dropped a 6-0, 6-2 match against Miles at the bottom of the order.

Valparaiso (2-2) will return to the courts on Feb. 24 to open Horizon League play at Milwaukee.  First serve is slated for 4 p.m.
