McDowell Wins USTA Pro Circuit Event

Aug. 3, 2008

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Georgia Tech rising junior Amanda McDowell, the 2008 NCAA Singles Champion, earned her first career USTA Pro Circuit singles title Sunday at the Heartland Clinic Women’s Classic 10K.

Main Draw Results

McDowell earned her way into the field-of-32 by winning three qualifying matches earlier in the week. In the main draw, McDowell defeated the tournaments No. 3 and No. 1 seeds in straight sets before finishing off Emily Webley-Smith 6-1, 6-0 in the finals to earn the circuit title.

“I felt really good about my play this week,” McDowell said. “This was a real big confidence booster for me. To be out there on my own and play so well was really exciting.”

Former Tech standout Kristi Miller also cruised through the qualifying rounds of the tournament and reached the second round of the main draw before falling to Ellah Nze 7-5, 6-4.

Fans can continue to follow McDowell on the USTA Pro Circuit before she returns to campus for the start of the fall semester.
