Crawford and Runefelt won their doubles match against Kennesaw State’s Hopton and Robinson, winning 8-3. Crawford also won her first round singles match against Sofia Kurtz of Tulane, 6-3, 2-6, 6-0.
“Montana and Carin had a strong start in doubles. They were able to execute much of what we’ve been practicing the last couple of weeks. Montana did a great job battling in her first match,” said UI head coach Katie Dougherty. “Carin had a couple tough ones but played much better in her second match. Back to work tomorrow, looking forward to finishing strong.”
Tournament action will resume Saturday at 8 a.m. (CT).
