ITA Regional Championships Complete; Oracle National Fall Championships Begin Next Week in Indian Wells

The ITA's Division I Regional Championships were completed today, with the results of all the finals below.  Seven of the tournaments were held last weekend, with the 14 finishing today, with all 24 finalists advancing to the Oracle National Fall Championships, beginning next Wednesday in Indian Wells, California.

As is the case every year, the Regionals produce some unlikely champions and also some excellent performances from freshmen who, until this tournament have had little opportunity to compete against the best.  The ITA results page has links to recaps from most of the individual schools' websites.

Three of the women's singles finals and three of the men's singles finals were between teammates, with the Texas, Stanford and Pepperdine women meeting for the titles, as did the Georgia, Michigan and Mississippi State men. For some reason, five of those six matches were played, but the Mississippi State match wasn't.

Those that have now qualified for the Fall Championships, including the small college champions, are listed on the ITA website.  The at-large selections and wild cards have not yet been released.

Below are all the singles and doubles finals results.  Those Regionals that were last weekend are in italics.
