Huljev Advances at Slovenian Championships

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State women’s tennis signee Antea Huljev won her opening match at the 2007 Women’s Championships of Slovenia in Domzale, Slovenia.


Huljev (pronounced HOOL-yev), a product of Velenje, Slovenia, is seeded third overall in the tournament and received a first round bye. In her first match in the second round, she defeated Romina Jarc of Lubjlana, 6-4, 6-1. She will continue action at the Women’s Championships of Slovenia on Friday against the fifth-seeded Tina Potsik.


Huljev will join a Wildcat lineup loaded with potential that endured numerous injuries throughout a 5-16 season. Kansas State finished the 2006-07 campaign with a 3-8 record in the Big 12 Conference and was defeated in the first round of the Big 12 Championships in Kansas City on April 26.
