Kara Bunkers (5-2, Fr., Sioux Falls, S.D. / Roosevelt HS) won all three matches she played in to help Sioux Falls (8-9, 5-6 NSIC) go 2-0 against Minnesota Crookston and Bemidji State to secure a berth in the 2014 NSIC tennis tournament.

Kara BunkersYou'd be hard pressed to find a more impressive No. 3 doubles tandem in the NSIC than USF's freshman phenom duo of Kara Bunkers and Abby Seigenthaler. The high school teammates posted bagels (8-0) against UMC's Sarah Muellner/Anna Yuhala and BSU's Abby Vohaska/Anna Markgraf to finish the NSIC regular season a remarkable 10-1 at No. 3 doubles and extend their winning streak to 10 matches in a row.

The Bunkers/Seigenthaler tandem has not lost a doubles match since the Cougars' spring opener against No. 30 Augustana, where they were upended 8-4 by Jenna Helleberg and Meredith Lawrence. Bunkers also played No. 6 singles on Saturday for USF, where she tallied a breadstick and a bagel against BSU's Anna Markgraf (6-1, 6-0) to improve her overall singles record to 5-0 (4-0, NSIC).
