Alabama ends its season with 9th NCAA Tournament appearance.

 

ATHENS, Ga. – The 24th-ranked University of Alabama (15-9) women’s tennis team dropped a 4-3 decision to No. 35 Boise State (24-4) Saturday afternoon in the First Round of the 2009 NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga.  Alabama’s season culminated in its ninth NCAA Tournament appearance and achieving the team’s first national ranking since 1997.

 

Boise State took a 3-0 lead by winning the doubles point (their 26th doubles-point win in 28 matches this season) along with wins at No. 1 and No. 3 singles before the Crimson Tide rallied to even the match with wins at No. 4, No. 6, and No. 2 singles.  The match came down to a battle at No. 5 singles between UA’s Taylor Lindsey and BSU’s Klaudia Wlodarczyk, who prevailed over Lindsey 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, to end the match.  The marathon match lasted four hours, 29 minutes, in humid conditions.
