Oct. 25, 2004
PHILADELPHIA, PA - The George Washington University women's tennis team was back on the courts this past weekend, Oct. 22-24, at the Wilson/ITA Eastern Regional, hosted by Penn, at Levy Pavilion. Freshman Kendall Swenson (Shaker Heights, OH) continued her strong play by advancing to the Round of 64 in singles play and teamed with senior Natasha Bode (Paradise Valley, AZ) in doubles to advance to the Round of 32.
In singles play, Swenson cruised past Renee James of Robert Morris, 6-0, 6-0 in the first round, before falling to Yulia Rivelis of host Penn, 6-1, 6-2 in the Round of 64 on Sunday. Rivelis was one of 16 seeded players from 17-32 in no particular order.
Swenson paired up with Bode in doubles action and the duo earned an 8-2 victory over Jennifer Daigle and Sara Bitetti of Providence in the opening round on Saturday. In the Round of 32, fifth-seeded Courtney Bergman and Elsa O'Riain of Harvard proved to be too much for Bode and Swenson advancing with an 8-1 win.
The conclusion of the Wilson/ITA Eastern Regional marks the end of the fall season for GW. The Colonials return to action when they open the spring season at Old Dominion on Friday, Jan. 21, at 1 p.m. in Norfolk, VA.
