ATHENS, Ga.—The Georgia women’s tennis team will play host to the 2013 ITA Southeast Regional Championships this weekend at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.
“We’re fired up for this weekend,” said head coach Jeff Wallace. “It’s a chance for a lot of our players to qualify for National Indoors up in New York. I think that we’re playing well right now. Everybody has been practicing hard and our tournament results so far show that.”
The tournament will feature four days of singles and doubles action among five different draws. The singles and doubles winners from all 12 regional sites will earn bids to the National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships in New York, Nov. 7-10.
Five Georgia players will compete in the main singles draw and three Bulldog pairs will compete in the main doubles draw.
In singles, Maho Kowase is the top seed. Silvia Garcia and Kate Fuller are seeded No. 8 and 14, respectively. Mia King and Lilly Kimbell are the other Bulldogs competing this weekend. Lauren Herring earned a singles bid by reaching the quarterfinals of the All-American Championships earlier this month and will not be competing in singles competition this weekend.
In doubles, the country’s second ranked pair of Garcia and Fuller are the top seed, with the duo of Herring and Kowase seeded No. 5. The tandem of King and Kowase are also in the main doubles draw.
Last year, Herring won the singles crown and along with Fuller took home the doubles title.
