PALM DESERT, Calif. – The Virginia women’s tennis duo of Rosie Johanson (Abbotsford, British Columbia) and Meghan Kelley (Falmouth, Maine) continued to advance at the ITA National Fall Championships, moving on to the quarterfinals after picking up a win on Thursday.

The fifth-seeded doubles team in the event, the duo of Johanson and Kelley, rallied after a hard-fought first set and picked up a win over the pairing of Leolia Jeanjean and Giulia Pairone. The Cavalier duo dropped the first set in a tiebreak, but rallied to win 6-7 (2), 6-4, 1-0 (9) over the ninth-ranked team in the ITA women’s doubles rankings.

With the win, Johanson and Kelley will now face the duo of Emily Arbuthnott and Michaela Gordon of Stanford on Friday (Nov. 3).
