ND Women’s Tennis: Frilling to compete in ITA Indoor Tourney

Alex Barker | Thursday, November 5, 2009

One week after taking runner-up in the singles competition at the Midwest Regional , sophomore Kristy Frilling will compete at the ITA National Indoor Championships beginning today in New Haven, Conn.


No. 20 Frilling will take on California’s No. 26 Mari Andersson in the first round of the singles tournament at 1 p.m.

The Sidney, Ohio native is no stranger to this level of competition. Last season as a freshman, Frilling and teammate Kelcy Tefft (’08) advanced to the finals of the doubles competition before falling in the championship match to Fresno State’s Renata Kucerkova and Anastasia Petukhova.

Frilling boasts a 5-2 record on the season in singles matches and leads the Irish at the No. 1 singles position.

The National Indoor Championships feature a 32-player singles field and 16 doubles teams.
The rest of Notre Dame’s squad will travel to Kalamazoo, Mich. for its first match of the season when it competes in the Western Michigan Invitational on Friday.
