In doubles, Barnes and Yelsey continued their winning ways in the quarterfinals today, defeating the tournament's top-seeded duo from Notre Dame, Christian Thompson and Catrina Thompson, 8-3. It was the second time this season that the pairs faced off, in October, the Thompson sisters won a 9-7 match in the ITA All-American quarterfinals. Barnes and Yelsey will face third-ranked Maja Kovacek and Iva Gersic of New Mexico in the semifinals tomorrow.

Yelsey will also play in the singles consolation quarterfinals, after posting a three-set victory over Georgia's Natalie Frazier, the 16th-ranked player in the nation.

In Tempe, the Cardinal did not fare as well, as sophomore Whitney Deason, the top-seeded singles player at the ASU Thurnderbird Invitational won her opening match, but lost her second round match. Fellow sophomore Celia Durkin withdrew in the first round due to injury. And in doubles, the Deason-Durkin pair dropped its opening round match. They are slated to take on Michigan duo Delicata and Exon on Saturday and Kansas State pair Simosa and Klimova on Sunday. Deason is tabbed to face Lindsay Howard (Michigan) in the Gold Bracket tomorrow.
