LOS ANGELES - The UCLA tennis teams had several players chosen as at-large selections to the 2011 NCAA Singles & Doubles Championships on Wednesday. The NCAA individual draws run from May 25-30 in Stanford, Calif.
UCLA's top two women's players, Noelle Hickey and McCall Jones, will compete in the 64-player singles draw. Hickey, who is currently ranked No. 41 nationally, reached the round of 16 at last year's tournament in Athens, Ga. Jones, who is ranked No. 57 in the country, competed in the singles draw last season as a sophomore at BYU.
Hickey and Jones will also be competing together in the 32-team doubles draw in Stanford. The duo, which is ranked No. 24 nationally, owns a 15-5 overall record this season. Courtney Dolehide and Andrea Remynse have also earned an at-large selection to compete in the doubles draw. The duo, which is currently the Bruins' top doubles team, is ranked No. 23 nationally with a 15-7 overall record.
The Bruin men have one player who will definitely be competing in Stanford, as Daniel Kosakowski was chosen to represent UCLA in the men's singles draw. He owns a 20-12 overall record and is currently ranked No. 37 nationally. Likely joining Kosakowski in the draw will be senior Amit Inbar, who is currently the first alternate.
