SKILLMAN, NJ (July 23) - The homestretch of the 2015 ITA Summer Circuit, presented by the USTA, is upon us, with just one more weekend of action left in the circuit before the ITA/USTA National Summer Championship takes place from August 8-11 in Bloomington, Indiana.

 

Highlights from last weekend's action include:

 

Transfer Topples Tournament #2

Madison Harrison (Mississippi State) followed up her Week 1 title at Florida State, where she knocked off four of the top five seeds, by ousting the top two seeds at Alabama to win her second ITA Summer Circuit event of the summer. Harrison played her freshman season at Kansas, but will suit up for the Bulldogs this September.

 

Katz repeats at Azusa Pacific

USC's Zoë Katz will enter her junior season with at least two individual circuit titles under her belt, having won the Azusa Pacific women's singles title in both 2014 and again this past weekend. Katz, who's career high Oracle/ITA Rankings are No. 59 in singles and No. 3 in doubles, only dropped one set in six matches.

 

Siblings take singles titles at UC Davis

Eli and Sophia Whittle won the men's and women's singles championships at UC Davis. Eli will enter his junior season for the Aggies in 2015-16, while Sophie will take the courts for her freshman campaign for the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Sophia also made the doubles final in Davis, CA, losing in a tiebreak.
