LAFAYETTE – Sophomore Dana Radovanovic and freshman Ai Noa Fabre each finished first in their respective singles draws to give Louisiana Women's Tennis a strong finish at the Ragin' Cajuns Invitational, which wrapped up on Saturday, Sept. 29 at Cajun Courts.

In doubles Louisiana had two of its three duos win their respective titles, when the pair of Fabre and sophomore Floriane Picaut won the No. 2 doubles draw and sophomore Morgan Forshag and freshman AK Harvey won the No. 3 doubles draw to give Louisiana a great finish to its fall home tournament across both singles and doubles.

TWO CAJUNS CROWNED IN SINGLES: In the No. 3 singles draw Radovanovic faced off with her Louisiana teammate, junior Clara Mantaux in the final match of the draw.  It was a marathon match between the two Cajuns, going three sets, before Radovanovic could pull off the win.

Radovanovic won the first set, 6-3, before Mantaux stormed back to win the second set 4-6.  It set up a third set super tiebreaker where Radovanovic pulled away to win the final set and the match 6-3, 4-6, 10-3.

Louisiana had another all Cajuns finals matchup in the No. 5 singles draw where Fabre faced off with junior Milena Achlamov.  Fabre came out and won the match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, to give Louisiana its second singles title of the weekend.

CAJUNS DOUBLE UP IN DOUBLES: The Ragin' Cajuns added two more trophies to its weekend case when Fabre/Picaut (No. 2 doubles draw) and Forshag/Harvey (No. 3 doubles draw) won their matches.

Fabre and Picaut took down ULM's duo of Garbino/Cueto 6-3 to wrap up No. 2 draw's championship.  The No. 3 draw was an all Louisiana final with Forshag/Harvey beating the Cajuns pair of Mantaux and freshman Hoda Habib, 6-3.
