AU women's tennis has great second day at Fl. St. tourney

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Doubles play was the highlight for the Auburn women's tennis team on the second day of the Seminole Quad Tournament in Tallahassee, Fla., Saturday.  

"We had a good day overall today," head coach Tim Gray said. 

Auburn's Jackie Kasler and Paulina Schippers won both of their matches to advance to Sunday's doubles gold bracket championship round. The pair beat Florida State's Francesca Segarelli and Federica Suess 8-6 in the first round, and downed Georgia Tech's Lynn Blau and Elizabeth Kilborn 8-4 to advance to the finals.

"To pick up two wins over Georgia Tech and two wins over FSU tells me that we're making great progress," Gray said. 

Caroline Thornton and Emily Newton got an opening round 9-8 (1) win over Noemie Scharle and Katie Rybakova of Florida State in the first round, but fell South Florida duo Janette Bejkova and Loreto Alonso 8-6.

Thornton and Newton will face Blau and Kilbron Sunday in the third place match. 

"I saw improvement from each of our doubles teams," Gray added.

"We still have to do a better job of completing assignments and executing at a higher level." 

Plamena Kurteva and Taylor Schreimann also had a good day in doubles play defeating a pair from Georgia Tech 8-5, while Olivia Bennett and Maria Archavaleta dropped a match to Georgia Tech (8-3) and Ole Miss (8-3) in the doubles white bracket.
