ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's tennis team won 13 singles matches and six doubles matches at the Navy Blue & Gold Invitational this weekend at the Tose Family Tennis Center. Due to rain throughout the weekend, only the indoor courts were utilized and there were no consolation brackets.

Senior Darien Sears (Silver Spring, Md.) advanced to the finals of the "A" singles flight to highlight Navy's individual efforts over the weekend. Sears defeated George Washington's Grace Egger, 8-7 (7-5), in the first round and Georgetown's Kelly Comoli, 7-6 (10-5), 4-6, 1-0 (10-8), in the quarterfinals. Sears then defeated Taylor Nederlander of George Washington in the semifinals, 6-4, 6-3 before falling in the finals.

Sophomore Katie Porter (Matthews, N.C.) advanced to the semifinals of the "B" singles flight. Porter defeated Towson's Lorena Ferrer, 8-2, in the play-in round and then knocked off Howard's Maame Osei, 8-6, in the first round. Porter then scored a 6-0, 6-4 win over Longwood's Paloma Alatorre in the quarterfinals.

Freshman Maggie McLaughlin (Erie, Pa.) won two matches to advance to the semifinals of the "D" singles flight.

Sears and sophomore Cassandra Fisbeck (Granada Hills, Calif.) went 2-1 in the "A" doubles flight to advance to the semifinals.

Howard won the "A" flight singles and James Madison won the other five brackets.

Navy will next send its qualified players to the ITA / USTA Atlantic Region Championship beginning Friday, October 18 in Charlottesville, Va. The ITA / USTA Atlantic Region Championship is Navy's final scheduled competition for the fall season. Navy will open the spring dual season on January 18th at home against Saint Francis, Pa.

"We went up against some really strong competition this weekend," head coach Keith Puryear said. "We had some good performances, especially with Darien who was a little under the weather. Now we will move ahead and prepare for the ITAs this weekend."
