Lead by Dugan, Vixens Conclude ITA Tournament Match Play

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. --- Day two at the ITA tournament hosted by Mary Washington University concluded on a high note for Mary Elise Dugan (Alexandria, Va./Chatham Hall).  The first-year came back from a hard fought day one singles match defeat to upend conference foe Caitlin Hoerr of Hollins University and ultimately take a spot in the finals. 


In the lower half of the Blue 6 Singles consolation bracket, teammate Yuliya Rigg '13 (Sweet Briar, Va./Amherst) walked through to a semi-final match up with another Old Dominion Athletic Conference competitor, Stephanie Bittner.  Bittner of Virginia Wesleyan College moved on after an 8-1 win. 


Meanwhile at the top of the bracket, Dugan squared off in the semis with Randolph-Macon College opponent Reba Sledd.  Dugan held on for the 8-6 win and earned a berth in the final match with Bittner.  Dugan was not able to seal the deal on her great first ITA run as a Vixen Tennis player.  Bittner snagged the 9-7 win.  Full results are available online.


Head Coach Teresa Boylan noted that the two-day tournament was good experience for her squad.  She also added, "this is great progress for all participating Vixens."


After a week bye, the Vixen team travels to Norfolk, Va. to compete in the fall ODAC Individual Tournament on October 6 and 7 hosted on the campus of Virginia Wesleyan College.
