Chiricosta takes two second place finishes at BGSU Invite

Avon Lake’s Christine Chiricosta advanced to the championship for Bowling Green in top flight singles and doubles play, but lost both matches to notch two second-place finishes at the BGSU Invitational played at Keefe Courts last weekend.

Chiricosta won a pair of matches at the singles top flight on Saturday, defeating Cleveland State's Catrine Bjerrehus, 6-4, 6-1 and Detroit's Carolina Salas Espinosa, 6-2, 6-1 to advance to the Sunday’s flight championship against Akron's Zara. She then lost 6-0, 6-4 to notch the second-place finish.

In doubles, Chiricosta teamed with freshman Maddy Eccleston for a convincing 8-0 win over a pair from Youngstown State at top flight on Saturday, and then defeated a pair from Eastern Michigan on Sunday to get to the finals. They then lost to UA’s tandem of Angelina Jogasuria and Zara Harutyunyan in the championship match.

With her four total wins, Chiricosta moved into the BGSU top-25 for career victories. She now has 89 combined career wins, and has moved past Lisa Maloney (87 from 2001-04) and Brenda Conley (87 from 1987-90) into 24th place on the school list.
