Lee Concludes NCAA Championships in Quarterfinals

ORLANDO, Fla. Carol Lee’s incredible run in the 2023 NCAA Singles Championship came to a close on Thursday in the quarterfinals. The Yellow Jacket battled until the last point, but could not pull out a victory at the USTA National Campus.

The first Yellow Jacket to reach the NCAA Championship quarterfinals since 2010, Lee challenged NC State’s No. 26 Amelia Rajecki. The Wolfpack grabbed an early lead in the opening set, holding a 4-1 advantage before Lee climbed back to 4-3, winning the next two games. The opponents traded the next two games, setting up a 5-4 tally in favor of Rajecki, who served out the set, 6-4.

Lee erased an early 0-2 deficit to open the second set, moving back on serve at 2-all. But Rajecki responded by winning the next two games for a 4-2 advantage. Lee held serve at deuce for a 4-3 tally, but Rajecki won the next two games to take the match, 6-3.

Lee concluded a stellar 2023 season as an ITA Singles All-American, producing a 29-12 overall singles record, including a 17-7 dual record from the No. 1 position. She was ranked in the top 10 nationally of the ITA Rankings three times, climbing as high as No. 7 on March 21. In the fall season, she reached the finals of the ITA Southeast Regionals in both doubles and singles, capturing the doubles title with teammate Kate Sharabura. Qualifying for the prestigious ITA National Fall Championships, Lee made a run to the semifinals to close out the fall tournament season.
