Five Ducks Advance at ITA Regionals
STANFORD, Calif. – Five Oregon players are on the round of 32 in singles play at the ITA Northwest Regional after a long day of action Friday that was delayed at the start due to weather. The opening round of doubles play was pushed back to Saturday.
How it Happened: The Ducks got off to a solid start in the opening round of singles, advancing six players through to round two. Each made quick work of their opponents with straight-set victories, starting with Lillian Mould's 6-4, 6-2 win and Sophie Luescher's 6-3, 6-4 victory. Uxia Martinez Moral followed with a 6-3, 6-2 win before Allison Mulville and Ares Teixido Garcia each won 6-3, 6-4.
