Two Arizona doubles teams and four singles players advanced to the championship round in their respective brackets on Saturday at the Wildcat Invitational at El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort.

“It’s great to see the girls dominate the draws for the most part,” head coach Vicky Maes said. “We came into that tournament with that expectation.”

Junior Laura Oldham and senior Susan Mc Rann and sophomores Inge Hendrikx and Shayne Austin paired up to win both doubles matches to advance to the final round.

“In doubles, we are doing okay, but there is a lot of room for improvement yet to make,” Maes said.

Freshman Lauren Marker, senior Akilah James, Hendrikx and Austin won their singles matches and will play in the championship on Sunday.

Freshman Carly Cassity also won her singles match in three sets, overcoming a 4-0 third-set deficit to win the match.

“In singles, people are doing a great job of implementing the individual goals we have determined for them and that is very encouraging,” Maes said. “The team overall is in a very good place and I’m happy with our day-to-day progress, both in training and competition.”

The tournament will conclude on Sunday Oct. 13, 2013 beginning at 9 a.m., with one doubles matches followed by one round of singles matches.
