Ivenitsky and Wagman to Play on Championship Saturday

CLAREMONT, Calif. -- The Amherst College doubles team of Anya Ivenitsky '20 and Avery Wagman '18 are in the national semifinals after their second win of the tournament on Friday evening at the Biszantz Family Tenis Center.

In the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women's Tennis Doubles Championships, Wagman and Ivenitsky gutted out a 7-5, 2-6, 6-2 victory over Lindsay Brown and Nicole Tan of hosts Claremont Mudd Scripps. Brown and Tan were the #4 seed in the tournament, while the Amherst duo was unranked.

A familiar foe awaits the tandem in the semifinals, as they will match up against Julia Cancio and Juli Raventos of Williams College. 

Cancio and Raventos have dropped just three games over their first two matches.

The semifinals will be played not before 12:00 PM PST on Saturday, with the national championship to follow before the end of the day.
