From Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, the women’s tennis team traveled to St. Louis for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Regional Championships. Sending seven players, the Owls were successful in both singles and doubles at the tournament, going 10-7 and 4-3, respectively.
The team played well against their opponents, highlighted by Eleni Dakos ’23 who won three games before she lost in the finals of her bracket in straight sets. Lalasa Nagireddy ’25 also had a stellar performance in her matches, going 2-1. She advanced to the finals after edging out her opponent in an intense third-set tiebreaker. Besides her performance in singles, she and her partner, Amado Aguad ’26, also advanced to the semifinals in the doubles consolation draw. “Everyone that played performed really well,” Nagireddy wrote in an email to the Collegian. “We had some great wins, and everyone showed great sportsmanship.”
The Owls are off to rest for the winter before they play their spring season.
