Natalie Beazant and Dominique Harmath have earned repeat appearances in the singles and doubles competitions as part of the 2013 NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Championships. The singles and doubles competition will be conducted May 22-27 at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex/Atkins Tennis Center in Urbana, Illinois, following the conclusion of the team championship, which runs from May 17-21.
Beazant earned an at large berth to complete in her second consecutive NCAA singles event, and will join with Harmath to participate for a second consecutive year in doubles.
Last year the duo combined to post a pair of milestone wins for the Owls in NCAA play. Beazant won Rice's first singles match in NCAA play since 1986 when she defeated Stacey Tan of Stanford, 7-5, 6-2. The following day, Beazant and Harmath recorded Rice's first doubles win in the NCAA Women's Doubles Championship, downing Alabama's 41st ranked pair of Antonia Foehse and Mary Anne Macfarlane 6-1, 6-4.
Harmath is listed as the second alternate to earn a spot in the 2013 NCAA Singles Championship.
All matches shall be the best of three sets. Regular scoring and a 12-point tiebreaker at six games all will be used for all matches.
Automatic qualification into the Division I singles championships is awarded to any conference with one or more eligible singles players ranked in the ITA Top 125 for eligible/entered singles players. For conferences with more than one singles player within the ITA Top 125 eligible/entered singles players, the subcommittee applies the NCAA selection criteria to determine which student-athlete is the automatic qualifier from those conferences.
All singles players must have a minimum of 13 completed singles matches, with six matches in the spring, in order to be selected as an automatic qualifier or an at-large selection.
