Singles and Doubles Finals Results from USTA/ITA Men's and Women's Regional Championships

The USTA/ITA Regional Championships ended today, with the 12 men's and 12 women's singles and doubles champions guaranteeing themselves spots in November's USTA/ITA Indoor Intercollegiate Championships.  The remainder of the places in the tournament (32-draw in singles, 20-draw in doubles), will be filled by the ITA All-American consolation winners and men's singles quarterfinalists* and women's singles semifinalists,**, All-American doubles finalists, at-large selections, the small college super bowl champions and wild cards. Those will be announced later on the ITA website.

Freshmen Cameron Norrie of TCU, Andrew Watson of Memphis, Tom Fawcett of Stanford and Josie Kuhlman of Florida won regional singles titles as did unseeded newcomer Mikael Torpegaard of Ohio State. Although there are links to most draws at the ITA regional results page, I was not able to determine the seeds in the women's Northeast Regional and in the men's doubles in the Northeast Regional, but have provided them for all other results.

With McDonald already in the field from ITA AA, will there be an extra wildcard/at-large awarded or will Wang get the spot?

Colette - In the men's Northeast Regional, the two doubles teams in the finals (from Harvard and Dartmouth) were the 3/4 seeds. Also, the men's singles runner-up, Ashok Narayana of Columbia, was one of four 5-8 seeds, not the 5 seed as you indicate.

Columbia absolutely dominated the singles draw (96). Six players in the round of 16, four in quarters, three in semis and both finalists. In addition, its #8, who had to qualify, beat Yale's #2 from last year in the first round. And its #7 beat Harvard's #3/4 from last year in the round of 16.

Different topic/question: In the women's Mountain Regional, did the BYU doubles team not play in Sunday's final because of religious reasons? If this is the case, I find it quite surprising, considering BYU is a major, major athletic presence in this region and I'd think appropriate concessions would be made to accommodate the school's religious orientation.

@Alex--I believe that results in an extra at-large bid, but it could go to Wang.

@Ivy--
thank you for the seeding and Columbia information. I should have mentioned in my intro that I did the conventional shorthand for the seeding. If a player was 5-8. 9-16, 17-32, I used the 1st number in the group.
As for the BYU walkover, its website site says. "Due to BYU policy regarding participation on Sunday, the Cougar duo will withdraw from Sunday’s final."

Isn't Viki sophomore?

@fan-
I think you may be right. The roster hasn't been updated for 2014-15 it looks like.
