Tennis Team Kicks Off Season Hosting ITA Regionals

DRAWS

DECATUR, Ga. - Agnes Scott College and Emory University will once again co-host the ITA South Regional, bringing together the top teams from throughout the south region, including defending national champion, Emory, as well as top 15 Sewanee.  Other teams expected to compete include USA South Conference members Piedmont, LaGrange, Covenant, and defending champion Methodist University.

"We are thrilled to help Emory University and Coach Amy Bryant in hosting this prestigious event," commented Scottie head coach T.J. Greggs. "This will be a great opportunity to see where we are and what we need to work on between now and the spring."

The Scotties who will compete this weekend include four juniors and two first-years. Taylor Lee, Camille Wilson, Anastasia Bennett and Jumana Master will all be returning for their third season and look to take advantage of their experience. Newcomers Jasmine Keiler and Olivia Rivas will also compete for the Scotties, as the first-years play in their first intercollegiate matches.

"I think it's great that Olivia and Jasmine's first matches will be here at home," commented Greggs. "It'll certainly help with the nerves of a first match."

Bennett, Wilson and Lee will get things started for the Scotties on Friday at 8:00 a.m. Bennett faces off with Gracie Smith of Covenant, while Wilson takes on Mary Evelyn Carroll of Birmingham Southern, and Lee faces off with Piedmont's Amanda Blackwell. Master will take on Annie Thomas of Rhodes at 9:00 a.m., Rivas will try to pick up her first collegiate win against Tatiana Burkett of Piedmont at 9:15 a.m., and Keiler faces Carli Jones of LaGrange at 9:30 a.m.

In the doubles draws, the team of Keiler/Wilson take on Greeson/Walker of Methodist, Bennett/Rivas face Jones/Lee of LaGrange, and Lee/Master face off against Burkett/Rivera of Piedmont.  Full draws are available at the link above, and results will be updated in real time. Admission to the event is free to the public. Parking for fans is available courtside, as well as in the parking garage on campus.
