Three advance in the Wilson/ITA Regional Championships

Oct. 22, 2005

Stanford, Calif. - On the first day of the Wilson/ITA Regional Championships, hosted by Stanford University, the Santa Clara women's tennis team received a great performance by Kelly Leathers, as she notched two victories to earn a spot in the Round of 32.  The team of Erika Barnes and Casey Knutson, who received a first round bye, also was victorious and moved on to the second day of competition at the prestigious event after easily winning their match.

Unfortunately, the other Broncos did not fare as well. Kim Daniel, Stephanie Herrmann, Stephanie Galainena, and Barnes all lost their first round match, while Myra Davoudi, who received a bye in the first round, lost in the Round of 64. In doubles action, the duo of Flavia Miracle and Daniel were unable to overcome their first-round opponent, and Davoudi and Galainena suffered a similar fate, bowing out in the Round of 64.

The Broncos will continue action at the Wilson/ITA Regional Championships on Saturday.
