MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Day two of the Ohio Valley Regionals marked the beginning of Main Draw action for the University of Tennessee women's tennis team.
"We had a very competitive first day," said co-head coach Mike Patrick. "It was an excellent effort by our freshmen, especially the doubles team of Eve Repic and Laurence Guevremont who reached the quarterfinals of the main draw."
Henderson and Williams began with an 8-3 victory over Stephanie Fox and Kirsten Lewis of Kentucky while Repic and Guevremont defeated Lyn Yee Choo and Anna Gerbasi of East Tennessee State.
In round two of doubles action, Repic and Guevremont bested Natasha James and Marketa Trousilova of Evansville 8-5. Henderson and Williams exited the main draw with a tough 8-6 loss to host team Marta Morga and Skylar Kuykendall of Memphis.
Repic and Guevremont will continue on to the doubles quarterfinals where they will face Alyssa Hibberd/Caroline Wegner at 9 a.m. ET.
Four Lady Vols will be in action on Sunday in the singles bracket as Guevremont, Henderson, Repic, and Brittany Lindl all had wins in the opening round of action Saturday.
Guevremont used three sets to defeat Trousilova in singles as well 6-2, 3-6, 6-1, Henderson had a comeback three set victory over James of Evansville 1-6, 6-2, 6-2, while Lindl took down Briar Preston of Morehead State 4-6, 6-4, 7-5.
