New Berlin Eisenhower's girls tennis team followed up its Woodland Conference dual-meet championship in style.

The Lions won three of the four singles flights and a doubles flight to claim the conference tournament title for the first time since 2011.

Eisenhower finished the two-day event held Sept. 27 and 28 with 43 team points to edge Pewaukee, which took second with 37 points.

"Since I took over in 2011, this is the first Ike team I have coached, boys or girls, to win both the Woodland dual meet and tournament titles," Eisenhower coach Mike Jenders said. "This speaks to the depth and quality of our team. The girls should be very proud of all they have accomplished this year."

Lauren Landstrom won the championship at No. 1 singles, defeating Teresa Wan of New Berlin West (6-3, 6-2) in the quarterfinals, Elizabeth Krioutchenkov of Shorewood (6-4, 6-4) and outlasting top-seeded Valentina Kukuruzovic of Greendale (6-0, 2-6, 6-2) in the finals.

Holding true to her top seed, Samantha Ramsey took the title at No. 2 singles. She won, 6-0, 6-0, over Alyssa Kolehmainen of Greenfield in the quarterfinals and again over Kelly Hanlon of Greendale in the semifinals before taking down Margaret Bugnacki of Shorewood (6-3, 6-0) in the championship match.

Lauren Kosch won the No. 4 singles bracket with a quarterfinal win over Wauwatosa West's Caitlin Nelson (6-2, 6-3), a semifinal win over New Berlin West's Joy Chung (6-0, 6-1) and a finals victory over Pewaukee's Christina Heinritz (6-1, 6-1).

The team of Shannon Hegeman and Julia Hintz earned Eisenhower a title at No. 2 doubles. They won, 6-0, 6-0, over Greenfield in the quarterfinals; 6-2, 6-3 over Shorewood in the semifinals; and 7-6 (5), 7-5 over Wauwatosa West in the finals.

Gabby Majinski and Kate McCormick took second at No. 1 doubles, falling to Wauwatosa West (6-3, 6-2) in championship.

The No. 3 doubles team of Maggie Majewski and Meg McCormick rebounded from a 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 loss to Pewaukee in the semifinals to take third place with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Greendale.

No. 3 singles player Erin Dobrzynski suffered an injury, which forced her to withdraw during the first day of the tournament.

"We faced some adversity on the first day of the tournament," Jenders said. "However, day two saw some of our finest tennis of the season.  Everyone came out ready to play from the first ball, and the momentum built nicely to result in four gold medal flights, a silver and a bronze."
