Women's Tennis Finishes Strong at ITA Regional Championship

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Franklin & Marshall women's tennis team wrapped up the 2022 ITA Southeast Regional Championships on Saturday with a number of players picking up wins in the consolation draws of championship singles.

After a tough Round of 64 in the championship singles, Cassidy Landau, Mackenzie Sherman, and Jenna Harrison all opened their Saturday with victories. Landau and Sherman were both 8-1 winners during their respective matches. Landau picked up a regional victory against Catholic's Brooke Simpson before falling to Washington and Lee. Sherman notched her win against Katherine Tamesis of Salisbury before dropping a CC matchup to Swarthmore. Harrison recorded her victory against Christopher Newport's Anna Campbell before having to retire from the tournament.

In doubles, the pairing of Presley Daggett and Amelia Squires played a hard-fought semifinal match in the Blue A doubles draw, but came out on the wrong side of a 7-5 tiebreak against Christopher Newport after the two pairings had evenly split the first 14 games.

Saturday's ITA Regional Championship marked the final competition of the fall for the Diplomats who will play the majority of their schedule during the spring semester. A complete 2023 spring schedule will be announced in the coming months.
