CHAPEL HILL, N.C. –The doubles pairing of junior Chloe Gullickson (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.) and freshman Amber O’Dell (New Milford, N.J.) claimed the doubles title to lead several strong performances by the Virginia women’s tennis team at the Kitty Harrison Invitational over the weekend.

The duo won three doubles matches on the way to the title, while the pairing of senior Meghan Kelley (Falmouth, Maine) and Sofia Munera (Pereira, Colombia) went 2-0 and defeated the No. 22 pairing of Eva Alexandrova and Millie Stretton of Maryland.

Several Cavaliers turned in solid performances in singles over the weekend with Gullickson  and O’Dell both going 2-1 over the weekend. Kelley, who only played two matches, went 1-1 with a pair of hard-fought battles, including a matchup with No. 45 Ingrid Gamarra-Martins of South Carolina, while Munera went 2-0 in her two matches. 

It was the final team tournament of the season for the Cavaliers, though Kelley and Munera will continue competition at the ITA Fall National Championships. The duo earned an automatic bid to the event by winning the doubles title at the ITA Atlantic Regional. Kelley also earned an at-large bid to the event in singles after advancing to the semifinals at the ITA Atlantic Regional.


Play at the ITA Fall National Championships begins on Wednesday (Nov. 7).
