CHARLOTTE, N.C. -
Four members of the Charlotte
49ers women's tennis team will represent the program this weekend, starting
Thursday, at the ITA Carolina Regional in Winston-Salem, N.C. Each of the four
players will compete in singles and then pair off into two doubles tandems.
Niners making the trek to the fall season-ending tournament include Anna
, Lisa Grosselius
, Natsuko Takayanagi
and Alexandra Zinn
"We're looking for some good tennis over the weekend," head coach Michaela
said. "We will be indoors, so the elements, including wind and anything
along those lines, shouldn't bother us. We are just ready to go play."
Official draws for the event have not been released; however, Gorman noted two
players will be in the qualifying singles while the other duo has made the main
draw to open action.
Ekelund is one of three 49ers to register a team-high six singles victories
this fall. She split her two contests last weekend at the home event, the
Charlotte 49er Invitational.
Grosselius has tallied four singles wins thus far this fall, one more than
Takayanagi. However, Takayanagi is entering the tournament by winning two of
three last weekend in the round-robin event at the Halton-Wagner Tennis
Zinn has battled through injuries in her final fall campaign, seeing her first
singles action last weekend.
The combinations that have produced the most doubles triumphs include the
tandems of Ekelund and Grosselius and Takayanagi and Zinn. They have combined
for 10 of the team's 19 victories, including a team-best half dozen by Ekelund
