Thongdach Falls in Quarterfinals at ITA National Indoor Championships

NEW HAVEN, C.T.  – Boise State women’s tennis player Pichittra Thongdach advanced to the quarterfinal round of the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, Friday (Nov. 6), before falling in the third round of the singles tournament at Yale University in New Haven, C.T.

            Thongdach, who entered the fall ranked No. 47 nationally, earned her second win of the weekend Friday morning by defeating Allie Will (Florida), 1-6, 6-3, 6-0, in the round of 16. The win would advance her to the quarterfinals, but that is where her run in the winner’s bracket would end, however. Thongdach lost in the round of eight to No. 4 ranked Jana Juricova (California), 6-3, 6-2.

            Thongdach and doubles teammate Lauren Megale also dropped their only match of the day to fall from doubles action. The No. 33 ranked Boise State duo met No. 9 Kristi Boxx and Karen Njissen (Mississippi) in the consolation quarterfinals, where they would lose to Boxx and Njissen 8-4.
