GREENVILLE, S.C. -Two University of Tennessee women's tennis players captured third place in their respective singles flights on day two of the 2010 Furman Fall Classic, held Saturday at the Mickel Tennis Center.
After dropping her first flight one singles match of the day to North Carolina's Zoe DeBruycker, freshman Brynn Boren bounced back to top No. 70 Anya Morgina of South Carolina. That marks Boren's second defeat of a ranked opponent for the weekend.
In the second flight, senior Rosalía Alda began the day by dropping a grueling 2-6, 7-5, 7-5 contest to conference foe Chelsea Preeg of Vanderbilt. She followed that up with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 win over Clemson's Nelly Ciolkolwski, the No. 68-ranked player in the ITA singles rankings.
Freshman Millie Nichols won her first contest of the afternoon, topping Katherine Oudin of Furman in straight sets. Nichols was defeated by Northwestern's Kate Turvy in the fifth place match for singles flight three.
Kayla McMurry retired during the second set of her singles match against Furman's Michele Stanford.
The Lady Vols will close out the 24th annual Furman Fall Classic tomorrow with a pair of doubles finals. Alda and Nichols will take on Vanderbilt's Rachael Dillon and Alex Leatu in the flight one final, while Wofford and Jennifer Meredith are matched up with Jelena Durisic and Tessa Lyons of North Carolina for the flight two crown.
Play gets underway tomorrow afternoon with the flight two doubles final at 10 a.m., followed by the flight one final at 11 a.m. Results will be available on UTLadyVols.com shortly after competition.
