Lindsay Graff, Amanda Muliawan and Katherine Flanigan advanced to their flight finals at the USTA Women's College Invitational at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York Sunday.

The trio will play their final matches Monday, all against players from Columbia. Graff, the No. 1 seed in the "A" draw, will face Kanika Vaidya, while Muliawan will take on the "B" draw's top seed Bianca Sanon and the top two seeds in the "C" draw, Flanigan and Crystal Leung, will meet in that final.

Graff and Muliawan also won two matches in the top doubles flight Sunday to advance to the flight finals Monday against Madeleine Hamilton and Amber Li of Yale. The Princeton pair fought off six straight match points to defeat the Columbia pair of Bianca Sanon and Tiana Takenaga 9-7.
