Oct. 16, 2015

AUBURN, Ala. - The Auburn women's tennis team kicked off the 2015 USTA/ITA Regional Championship with 10 wins as all three doubles teams picked up wins in the main draw doubles bracket.

"I think we had a good amount of mixed results today," said head coach Lauren Longbotham Meisner. "We had some solid wins and a couple of tough losses that we can learn from. This is such a young team and we a working day-by-day on improving to reach our main goals for spring and competing in the SEC. A couple of positive things stood out today was that our doubles performances were great and also finishing the day winning all three set matches."

Top-seeded Pleun Bergmans and Paula de Man opened up the doubles main draw with an 8-3 win over Kyla Klier and NazKaragoz from Tulane.
