Oreshchenkova picks up first career wins as a Red Raider

FORT WORTH, Texas – Freshman Arina Oreshchenkova tallied her first career singles and doubles wins in the Scarlet and Black on the second day of the TCU Invitational.

The Brooklyn, N.Y. native first earned a gutsy win over Tarleton’s Elsa Boisson. The Red Raider went up 6-1 in the first set, before dropping the next set by the same score. The freshman wasn’t rattled, though, as she only allowed her opponent to win four points in the third-set super tiebreak, 10-4, and collected her first win with the Red Raiders.

Oreshchenkova paired up with teammate, Camryn Stepp, for doubles. The Tech duo came out firing as they defeated the Tarleton State tandem of Boisson and Emma Persson by a score of 6-3, for the freshman’s second win of the day.

Yekaterina Dmitrichenko continued the winning ways for the freshmen Red Raiders as she collected another singles win in the tournament. Taking on Persson from Tarleton, Dmitrichenko posted a straight-set victory, 6-3, 6-3, to record her second singles win and third total of the competition.

Tech concludes tournament play tomorrow at 11 a.m. with singles matches against SMU student-athletes, followed by doubles at approximately 12:45 p.m.
