History for one Lady Flames tennis player. Tuesday, at the ITA All-American Championships in Cary, N.C., Juli Parra-Romero downed 107th-ranked Sophie Leuscher in straight sets. The win gives Parra-Romero her first over a ranked opponent as a Flame and she becomes the first player in program history to win four matches at the ITA All-American event. Parra-Romero wraps up the week going 4-2 in singles play.
For the men’s team – the duo of Christian Worst and Josh Wilson are headed to the ITA All-American Championship doubles main draw. The duo is the first in Flames history to advance to the doubles main draw at the event. Wilson and Worst defeated Arkansas’ Adrien Burdet and Melvin Manuel in three sets in Tulsa, Okla. on Tuesday. They’ll face the tenth ranked doubles-duo in the nation from Portland today at 5:30 Eastern.
