OXFORD, Miss. – Caroline Rohde-Moe of the Ole Miss women’s tennis team was hoping to book a trip to New York with a win in the USTA/ITA Southern Regional, but she came up just short in a thrilling match. On Tuesday, Rohde-Moe learned that she will be headed to the Big Apple after all, receiving an at-large bid to the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships in Flushing Meadows.
Rohde-Moe was one of six finalists to receive an at-large bid to the National Indoor, which takes place Nov. 8-11 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
“We are really excited for Caroline to earn a spot in the National Indoors,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “She came so close to winning the (Southern) Regional with a couple match points. She played at a very high level throughout the tournament, so for her to get in is a well-deserved honor. It’s going to be a tough field, but a great opportunity for Caroline.”
The championships feature a 32-player singles draw and 20-team doubles field for men and women, including: champions from USTA/ITA Regional Championships held across the country during October, the USTA/ITA National Small College “Super Bowl” champions, the doubles champions and singles quarterfinalists from the D’Novo/ITA Men’s and Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championships, as well as at-large and wild card selections made by the ITA National Tournament Committee.
Rohde-Moe is currently ranked No. 55 in the nation with an 11-4 record.
