ST. PETER, Minn. – The brief fall season for women’s tennis began and ended this weekend as Carleton College took part in both the ITA Midwest Regional Championships as well as the Gustie Invite. In the prestigious ITA Regional, senior Anne Lombardi (Hinsdale, Ill./Hinsdale Central) and sophomore Mikayla Becich (Bradfordwoods, Pa./North Allegheny) advanced all the way to the finals of the doubles draw, while Lombardi also played into the semifinals of the singles bracket.

Carleton had four players entered in the singles draw for the ITA event, with the ninth-seeded Becich falling in the third round to fifth seed Abigail Pellett of Carroll University. Lombardi, seeded fourth, defeated a ranked Shirlene Luk of Grinnell in the quarterfinals before falling to eventual champion Megan Humphreys in the semifinals, 6-2 and 6-3.

In doubles play, Lombardi and Becich were the top seed and bested duos from UW-Whitewater and St. Olaf in the first two rounds. Next came a victory over the fifth-seeded pairing from Coe College and a defeat of an unseeded duo from UW-La Crosse, earning the two Knights a slot in Sunday’s final. With a spot at the ITA Small College Championships at stake, the tandem of Kara Lefsrud and Bridget Noack from St. Thomas posted a 6-2, 6-3 decision.

At the Gustie Invite, Carleton’s best showing came from the duo of sophomores Julia Krumholz (Hingham, Mass.) and Joyce Yu (Taipei, Taiwan), who advanced to the finals in the doubles draw before falling 8-4.

In singles, Krumholz and Caroline Greenberg (Fy./St. Louis, Mo.) both advanced to the third round of play.
