Student-Athlete of the Week for February 2: Ema Turudija, Tennis

Missouri State’s Ema Turudija led the Bears over the weekend by earning the team’s lone point in a doubleheader versus Iowa Saturday, then won both matches she appeared in at Creighton Sunday in MSU’s first dual victory of the season. The MSU senior topped Iowa’s No. 1 singles player Anastasia Reimchen in a tiebreaker in the first set, but dropped the second to force a third-set match tiebreaker. Turudija wound up winning 10-6 and made up the Bears’ one point in a 6-1 defeat.

Turudija provided a clean sweep of her matchups Sunday in a Missouri State 5-2 win over Creighton. Turudija and Poile went to a tiebreaker at No. 1 doubles against The Bluejays’ Ashley Ishimura and Darby Rosette, where the MSU duo came out with a 7-6 (3) win. The momentum carried over for Turudija to singles at the No. 1 slot, as she was the first to wrap up her match with a straight-sets 6-4, 6-0 victory over Ishimura.
