Sophomore Marcy Huck, one of three players returning from last year's team that lost in the championship match of the Summit League tournament, claimed a three-set victory at No. 6 singles to provide the deciding point in IPFW's 4-3 victory over UMKC on Saturday at the IPFW tennis courts.
Huck, an Anderson native who was home schooled, won the third and deciding set 6-2 over UMKC sophomore Amelie Amsallem to send the Mastodons into the NCAA tournament. Pairings will be released later.
IPFW jumped off to a 1-0 lead when it won the doubles point, then produced the other three necessary points by getting wins from Huck and at Nos. 2 and 4 singles by Caterina Kiefer and Mila Shustova.
UMKC won the men's championship.
