AUBURN, Ala. – There are eight players remaining in the USTA/ITA Southern Regional Championship singles draw, and the Ole Miss women’s tennis team boasts three of them.

Rain forced all the main draw matches to be played indoors at the Yarbrough Tennis Center, making for a long day, with six courts and a host of matches to be played in doubles and singles.

Senior Caroline Rohde-Moe, junior Julia Jones and sophomore Mai El Kamash all won their third round matches Saturday in straight sets to advance to the quarterfinals.  This marks the fifth year in a row for the Rebels to have more than one player reach the quarterfinals in singles.

Rohde-Moe, seeded No. 3 in the field, defeated 9-16 seeded Michalla Kucharova of host Auburn 6-4, 7-5. She will face Danielle Speilmann of Alabama in the quarterfinals Sunday at 9:30 a.m.  

El Kamash, seeded 5-8, downed Sara Castellano of McNeese State 6-4, 6-1 to set up a quarterfinal meeting against Auburn’s Emily Flickinger.  El Kamash improved to 12-4 this fall.  

Jones topped 5-8 seeded Natalia Maynetto of Alabama 6-3, 6-4 to improve to 9-2 on the year.  She will meet Stephanie N’tcha of Samford in the quarterfinals.
