Tournament Breakdown:
Soli will be competing against several of the nation's best players for the second straight weekend after going toe-to-toe with elite competition, last weekend at the Oracle ITA Masters in Malibu, Calif. The Liberty senior faced three ranked opponents at that event. She earned a signature straight-sets victory (7-5, 6-2) over No. 20 Asuka Kawai of Illinois at the tournament and finished with a 2-2 mark.

Soli will play in pre-qualifying on Saturday (up to two matches) and Sunday (one match). If she claims three straight victories, she will move on to the next round of qualifying on Monday and Tuesday.

Last spring, Soli posted a 24-5 singles mark and earned ASUN All-Conference first team and VaSID All-State first team honors.
