Four Tar Heels Headed To Nationals
Release: 10/31/2012

FLUSHING, N.Y. --- Seniors Zoe De Bruycker and Gina Suarez-Malaguti and freshmen Ashley Dai and Whitney Kay were awarded spots in the 2012 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, the ITA announced this week. The event, which is set for Nov. 8-11, is held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

De Bruycker, who was the singles runner-up at the USTA/ITA Carolina Region Championships in Winston-Salem, was an ITA at-large selection to the 32-player field due to her high national ranking and performance so far this fall. Suarez-Malaguti, who is a perfect 7-0 with wins over two top-20 opponents already, was also chosen as an at-large pick.

Dai and Kay, who were doubles semifinalists at regionals and are 9-1 this fall, earned the USTA wild card to the 20-team doubles field. Kay is also a singles alternate.
