OXFORD, Miss. -- Junior Caroline Rohde-Moe will represent the Ole Miss women's tennis team in the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships this week in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.

The National Indoor features many of the nation's top players in singles and doubles.  The event, which runs Thursday, Nov. 8 through Sunday, Nov. 11, is the second of three collegiate tennis majors and takes place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Gaining automatic entry into the tournament are champions from the USTA/ITA Division I Regional Championships held across the country in October, winners of the USTA/ITA National Small College Super Bowl, and the consolation champions, doubles finalists and singles quarterfinalists from the ITA Men's and ITA/Riviera Women's All-American Championships.

The women's singles draw features seven of the top 10 players from the Campbell/ITA Women's Preseason Rankings.

Rohde-Moe, ranked No. 55 in the nation, lost a thrilling three-set final to Alabama's Alexa Guarachi at the ITA Southern Regional, but her play was rewarded with an at-large bid.  The junior was one of six regional finalists to receive an at-large bid.

Rohde-Moe is making her first appearance at the National Indoor and comes into the event with an 11-4 record this fall.

Ole Miss has been well represented recently at the National Indoor.  Former two-time All-American Kristi Boxx earned three straight trips to New York in singles in 2009-2011 and teamed with Abby Guthrie in the doubles draw last year.
