LOS ANGELES - The UCLA men's and women's tennis teams learned who will be representing their programs in the upcoming NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships on Wednesday, as the NCAA released a list of individuals who have been accepted into the tournament.
The UCLA women will have two singles players and one doubles team competing at the event. Sophomore Robin Anderson, who has been ranked in the top 5 for most of the year, is seeded No. 3 in the 64-player singles draw. Joining Anderson in the singles draw is freshman Kyle McPhillips, who recently captured the Pac-12 Singles Championship, becoming the first Bruin freshman to win the title since Sara Walker in 2000.
Anderson was also selected to compete in the 32-team NCAA Doubles draw with teammate Skylar Morton. UCLA's Courtney Dolehide and Pamela Montez also have a shot at making the draw, as they are currently No. 7 on the alternate list.
On the men's side, UCLA's Dennis Novikov, Marcos Giron and Adrien Puget were all chosen as at-large selections to the 64-player singles draw. The Bruins do not have any singles alternates or doubles teams.
The individual portion of the NCAA Championships takes place following the team competition and runs from May 22-27 at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex/Atkins Tennis Center in Urbana, Illinois. The University of Illinois is the host school for the event.
