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.
