OXFORD, Miss. -- Following a successful tournament at the Country Club of Little Rock Collegiate Invitational, the Ole Miss women's tennis team takes the high road to California this weekend to compete in the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships, the first collegiate major of the year.
The tournament, featuring over 300 players, will begin Saturday, Sept. 29 with prequalifying singles at UCLA. Qualifying singles will begin Oct. 2, while the main draw begins on Oct. 4 at the Riviera Tennis Club.
Ole Miss will send three players to the tournament. Junior Caroline Rohde-Moe is ranked No. 55 in singles and will compete in the qualifying draw. She will carry a 5-2 record into the tournament. Sophomores Erin Stephens and Julia Jones will both compete in the prequalifying singles draw.
Stephens and Jones will also represent the Rebels in the doubles qualifying draw.
"After the NCAA Championships, the All-American is probably one of the biggest individual tournaments of the year," head coach Mark Beyers said. "To have three people participating is a great honor. We got off to a really good start this fall, and we look forward to continuing that at the All-American. The tournament features a lot of the top players in the nation, so it will be a great test for our players."
Ole Miss has had success at the All-American Championships with four-time All-American Paloma Collantes twice winning the singles title in 1992 and 1994.
