Oct. 4, 2012
PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. - The No. 31 doubles team of Tiffany Welcher and Alyssa Hibberd fell 8-4 to No. 28 Petra Niedermayerova and Karla Bonacic of Kansas State on Thursday in the first round of the main draw doubles competition at the ITA All-American Championships.
"The girls played great doubles today," said head coach Lee Taylor Walker. "They played the tactics perfect but just couldn't execute on the big points. We are looking forward to making a run in the back draw starting tomorrow."
Welcher and Hibberd will play tomorrow in the back draw against No. 7 Khunpak Issara and Lorraine Guillermo of Pepperdine at 11 a.m. CT. The winner of the back draw will qualify for the National Indoor Championships, Nov. 8-11, in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.
