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.

The event winners in singles and doubles advance to the Oracle ITA National Fall Championships. The 2017 Oracle ITA National Fall Championships, which serves as the concluding event to the fall portion of the college tennis schedule, is the only intercollegiate event to feature competitors from all five divisions competing for a national championship.
