Women's Tennis Enjoys Another Winning Day in Missouri and Philadelphia
Katherine Flanigan, Emily Hahn and Dorothy Tang collectively contributed to two wins over ITA nationally-ranked doubles pairs for the Princeton women's tennis team on the second day of the Mizzou Tennis Aces for the Cure in Kansas City.
Flanigan and Hahn defeated Missouri's 32nd-ranked Elisha Gabb and Cierra Gaytan-Leach 8-5 while Tang and Flanigan beat 47th-ranked Kanyapat Narattana and Carla Tur Mari of Oklahoma State 8-6.
Princeton went 3-1 in doubles on the day and added three singles wins in four tries against players from Nebraska.
In Philadelphia, rookies Sivan Krems and Caroline Joyce won their way into singles semifinal matches, with Krems defeating ITA 104th-ranked Bianca Sanon of Columbia along the way. In doubles, Krems and Penn State's Katherine Whiteaway, pairing up since the Tigers sent an odd number of players into the draw, will also play in a semifinal doubles match Sunday.
