The winner of the match will take on the winner of the No. 2 Emory/No. 7 Amherst match in the national semifinals on Saturday at 1:00 pm.
In addition, W&L junior Erika Proko (Charlotte, N.C./Providence Day) and freshman Lindsay Hagerman (Dallas, Texas/Highland Park) have been selected to compete in the individual competition. Proko was also chosen to participate in doubles along with her partner, senior Melissa Hatley (Columbia, S.C./Heathwood Hall). The singles and doubles tournaments will take place from May 20-22, at Sweet Briar.
Proko has compiled a singles record of 17-5 this season, while Hagerman has posted a 22-4 mark and was recently named the Atlantic South Region Rookie of the Year. The team of Proko and Hatley have logged a record of 24-2 this season.
