Junior Katie Paradies (Atlanta, Ga.) advanced to the finals of the Fayerweather Hall flight, before falling to Hannah Atkinson of Williams. A third Panther advanced to the finals as sophomore Sadie Shackelford (Sweanee, Tenn.) fell to Riqui McCoy of Williams in the Mission Park Flight. In doubles play, sophomore Margot Marchese (Summit, N.J.) and rookie Jennifer Sundstrom (Bradenton, Fla.) went undefeated in round robin play.
