Nov. 8, 2008

Northridge, Calif. - Cal State Northridge's Whitney Paluch beat Cal State Fullerton's Shelly Injejikian in straight sets, 6-2 and 6-2, to win the Open Single's C portion of the Matador Collegiate Invitational Saturday on the campus of Cal State Northridge.

Earlier in the afternoon, Injejikian defeated top-seeded Bliss Nixon by way of injury to advance to the championship round.

Leslie Bullock, who advanced to the semifinals Friday afternoon, was eliminated Saturday by Paluch, 6-2 and 6-2, en route to her championship.

Northridge's Nina Jaworowski, Paluch, Evgeniya Vertesheva and Nigora Sirijiddinova all won their respective brackets in both singles and doubles action.

In doubles action, the Titan duo of Injejikian-Bullock were defeated by Vertesheva-Sirijiddinova in the semi-final round, 8-3.
