WEST POINT, N.Y. – Senior Sarah Viebrock (Carmel, N.Y.) picked up her 106th career win on Saturday afternoon, as the Quinnipiac University women's tennis team continued play at the Army Invitational at Malek Courts in West Point, N.Y. Viebrock's victory puts her in sole possession of 13th place all-time, as she remains just one win shy of Jodi Robidoux for 12th place on the list.

Viebrock began her day with an impressive win over Army's Eva Sung in the quarterfinals of Flight "B" singles. Viebrock defeated Sung, 6-4, 6-4, to advance to the semifinals and a showdown with Angie Dabu of Fordham. Unfortunately, Viebrock's tournament came to a close when Dabu outlasted the senior captain, 6-4, 4-6, 10-4, to advance to the finals.

Two other Bobcats took the courts for the main draw, as Rachel Cantor (Short Hills, N.J.) and Lavinia Cristescu (West Hartford, Conn.) each advanced with wins yesterday. This time around though, Cantor and Cristescu fell short to conclude their flights. Cantor fell to FDU's Anna Rapoport, 6-1, 6-1, in Flight "A", while Cristescu was defeated by Stony Brook's Louise Badoche, 6-4, 6-2.

In consolation play, Dassa added two wins to her stellar career, defeating Fordham's Hanna Fritzinger, 8-6, and UConn's Marie Gargiulo, 8-6. She will appear in the championship match for the bracket.

The opening day saw great success for the Bobcats in doubles competition, advancing three teams to the semifinals. Unfortunately, the fierce competition prevailed and eliminated Quinnipiac from the main doubles draw. Sophomore Jacqueline Raynor (Garden City, N.Y.) and Michelle Dassa (Marlboro, N.J.) lost to Fordham's Sarah Ali and Bella Genkina, 8-2, while Viebrock and Cantor fell short to UMass's Yuliana Motyl and Chantal Swisziz, 8-6, in Flight "A".

In Flight "B" doubles, the unbeaten duo of Mary Chupa (Bradenton, Fla.) and Ariana Launie (Milton, Mass.) saw their streak come to a close. Chupa and Launie were defeated by UMass's Julia Comas and Jocelyn Providence, 8-3, in the semifinals.

The 2012 Army Invitational wraps up tomorrow morning at the Malek Courts in West Point, N.Y. First serve is set for 9 a.m.
