(Rochester, Mich.) - The Kansas City women's tennis team secured a berth in the Summit League Tournament after going 2-0 on day one in the second Summit League Cluster of the season, downing Oakland 4-1 and IUPUI by a 4-0 score.

Against OU (2-10, 0-1 SL), the Grizzlies jumped out to a 1-0 lead after taking doubles wins at the No. 2 and 3 spots to claim the point.

Kansas City (7-12, 4-1 SL) quickly answered when it came to singles play though, getting straight set wins from Amelie Amsallem at No. 5 and Eva Dalvai at No. 3 to make it 2-1. The 'Roos clinched it a little bit later when Laura Bouet and Dimitra Stavrianakou each won three-set matches at the No. 1 and 2 spots.

UMKC made quick work of IUPUI (4-14) in the afternoon match, taking a 4-0 win. The 'Roos won the doubles point after getting victories in the No. 3 and No. 1 spots. The Jaguars made the match at No. 1 matter after taking the win at the No. 2 position.

In singles play, Gabriela Pintos, Suzan Lisenby, and Bouet each coasted in straight set wins at Nos. 6, 4 and 1 to seal the dual win. IUPUI didn't win more than three games in any of the three UMKC victories.

Kansas City will face South Dakota on Friday morning to wrap up the final cluster of the year.
