Weatherholt Wins ITA Summer Circuit Event at KU
Nebraska senior Mary Weatherholt teamed with Indiana's Alicia Kauss to capture the doubles title at the 2012 ITA Summer Circuit event at the University of Kansas, July 20-22.
Weatherholt, who captured 2012 Big Ten Player-of-the-Year honors before earning a trip to the NCAA Women's Singles Championships, joined Kauss in posting a perfect 3-0 record in the main draw of the tournament.
After receiving an opening-round bye, Weatherholt and Kauss blitzed to an 8-0 win over Augustana's Elizabeth Lewis and Kansas State's Miranda Erisman in the second round. Weatherholt/Kauss cruised to an 8-2 victory over Colorado's Ashley Tiefel and George Washington's Stephanie Wei in the semifinals, before rolling to an 8-3 win over Kansas' Dylan Windom and Illinois-Chicago's Haley Craig in the championship match.
