JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 20, 2003) - East Tennessee State's women's tennis team had a strong showing in the 2003 ETSU Tournament placing in the finals in seven of eight flights and winning five.

ETSU swept the doubles brackets with Ziolkowska and Aimee Villavicencio (Lexington, Ky.) and Mariya Ilyina (Kyiv, Ukraine) and Courtney McInnis (Waterboro, Maine) winning the championship games in each of their flights. "Overall I'm happy with the results," stated head coach Steve Brooks. "We still have a lot of work to do, but this is a good start to show us where we need to go."
