WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Oct. 17, 2015) – The East Tennessee State University women’s tennis team closed out play at the ITA Regionals Saturday in West Lafayette, Ind. Senior Lyn Yee Choo (Kuching, Malaysia) was the only ETSU player in action and tallied a record of 1-1. Overall, the Buccaneers complied a record of 7-7 at the event.

Choo defeated Vanderbilt’s Fernanda Contreras Gomez in three sets: 4-6, 6-3 and 6-4 but dropped a match in the following round to Justina Mikulsyte of Kentucky in three sets: 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

“She had a solid tournament and played well today,” said ETSU head coach Travis Sandlant on Choo’s performance. “She just came up against a top-ranked player that was on fire and kept the level higher for a little longer.”

The Buccaneers will have a long layoff until they next hit the court. ETSU will return to action Nov. 13-16 when it competes in the Dick Vitale Invite in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. This event will conclude the fall season for the Bucs.
