Area Colleges: Abeysinghe stands out in UIS tennis

Thiyumi Abbeysinghe defeated Southern Indiana’s Gretchen Cantwell 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 at No. 2 singles for the University of Illinois Springfield’s only win in a 5-1 non-conference match loss to USI Sunday.

The match, just like the men’s event, was halted due to inclement weather once the Screaming Eagles wrapped up their fifth win.

Abbeysinghe was featured in a March 15, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
