Alice Barnes and Anne Yelsey Claim Doubles Title
Nov. 6, 2005
Stanford's sixth-ranked pair of Alice Barnes and Anne Yelsey picked up their second title together, as the duo won the 2005 ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championship in Columbus, Ohio, today. The pair won the Pac-10 title last spring, and today, they won their first national title with an 8-5 victory over North Carolina's Jenna Long and Sara Anundsen.
In singles, junior Theresa Logar, ranked No. 13 in the nation, fell in the finals to 34th-ranked Diana Srebrovic of Florida, 7-5, 6-4, while junior Anne Yelsey captured the consolation title with a 7-6(6), 6-2 victory over Cal's Suzi Fodor.
In Tempe, Whitney Deason closed out the ASU Thunderbird Invitational with wins in singles and in doubles with Celia Durkin. Deason notched a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Michigan's Kara Delicata in singles, and the Deason-Durkin pair posted an 8-4 win against Kansas State's Simosa and Klimova.
Stanford will be on the road again, as the Cardinal travels to Honolulu for a fall match against Hawai'i, on Nov. 22.
