WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Oct. 16, 2015) – A day after compiling a record of 3-2, the East Tennessee State University women’s tennis team went 3-4 on the second day of competition at the ITA Regionals. Lynn Yee Choo (Kuching, Malaysia) and Ioanna Markesini (Athens, Greece) both picked up wins Friday.

“A big win today for Ioanna in the back draw,” remarked ETSU head coach Travis Sandlant. “She had an unlucky first round, but pulled through against a very good player.”

With the results Friday, Choo is the only ETSU player remaining in the field. Choo will continue play Saturday with a match against Fernanda Contreras Gomez of Vanderbilt in singles competition in the round of 32.

Choo and the rest of the field will be back on the court at 9 a.m. Saturday.
