Another invitational, another title.

The Warriors claimed their second tournament championship this season by winning the Delavan-Darien Invitational on Aug. 14 with 86 points. Kenosha St. Joseph's took second with 71 points.

Muskego won five of the seven flights, with singles titles taken by Amy Upthagrove at one, Emily Kleist at two and Jessie West at three. Capturing doubles crowns were Jessica Klamecki and Megan Hanjadi at two and Erica Baldwin and Kristin Kubel at three.

Lisa Krawczyk finished second at fourth singles and Elizabeth Jacoby and Julie Dusold came in third at first doubles.

"We were missing a few people in our lineup for this tournament and had to play people up to fill our roster," head coach Sue Vogel said. "Did these girls come through!

"Amy and Emily just dominated their flights. When Jessie pulled out her tough final match at third singles and then Megan and Jessica won their match at second doubles, I knew we had the championship clinched."

Vogel was particularly proud of the players who moved up at least a slot.

"These young players really stepped up and played like veterans," she said. "I am so glad they had their chance to shine."
