PACIFIC PALISADES, CALIF. – Georgia Tech women’s tennis senior Jillian O’Neill fell in her bid to earn a spot in the main draw at the Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championships at the Riviera Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
After winning her first two matches of the qualifying round in three sets, O’Neill, ranked 21st, found herself on the short side of another tough three-set match. O’Neill lost 6-3, 3-6, 4-6 to Emily Fraser, ranked 36th, from the University of Virginia.
Tech’s sixth ranked doubles pair of Caroline Lilley and O’Neill is the fifth seed in the main draw of the doubles tournament and has earned a first round bye. They will face the winner of Stanford’s Mallory Burdette and Nicole Gibbs and Baylor’s 10th ranked team of Sona Novakova and Nina Secerbegovic.
