    Sophomore Natasha Rizvi and freshman Mary Meyers each won the singles title in her draw Sunday at the Florida International End of Fall Invitational in Miami, Fla. The tournament wrapped up the fall season for the Falcons.

    Rizvi captured the #3 draw title with a com from behind 2-6, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Akemi Maehama of Barry University, while Meyers downed teammate Marcelli Magday to win the #4 draw. Senior Hannah Dake also won on Sunday, defeating Kristel Sanders of Ball State, 6-0, 6-2 in the #2 draw. Dake was scheduled to play in the third-place match but two Ball State players advanced to the finals so matchups were changed.

    Sophomore Tiffany Tran also posted a victory on Sunday, defeating Margarita Sadovnikova of Youngstown State in the consolation round of the #1 draw.
