CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Sophomore Rosie Johanson (Abbotsford, British Columbia) of the Virginia women’s tennis team capped her run at the ITA Atlantic Regional on Tuesday (Oct. 17) with a runner-up finish in the event hosted at Virginia Tech.

Johanson, who claimed the doubles title a day earlier with partner Meghan Kelley (Falmouth, Maine), played two matches on Tuesday to close out the event. The top-seeded singles player in the regional, Johanson defeated seventh-seeded Elena Cerezo-Codina by a score of 6-3, 6-1 in the semifinals. She dropped the finals match against second-seeded Natalie Novotna of Virginia Tech, 6-1, 6-4 to close the regional.
