PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – It was a full day of tennis for members of the Virginia women’s tennis team on Thursday (Oct. 5) as sophomore Rosie Johanson (Abbotsford, British Columbia) and junior Meghan Kelley (Falmouth, Maine) competed in the main draw at the ITA All-American Champions.
The event is hosted for the 33rd consecutive year at the Riviera Tennis Club.
Johanson, who is ranked No. 34 in the ITA singles rankings, fell to No. 8 Sinead Lohan of Miami by a score of 6-4, 6-2. Lohan was the No. 7 seed in singles at the ITA All-American Championships. Johanson will now play Mia Horvit of South Carolina at 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday in the consolation bracket.

In the second round of action, the Virginia duo fell in a tiebreak to the second-ranked team of Alizee Michaud and Taylor Russo from Auburn. The pairing from Auburn is also the No. 2 seed in the main draw of the tournament.
