Fiona Crowley wins the ITA All-American singles title

Cary, North Carolina Fiona Crowley He is a national champion after taking the singles title at the ITA All-American Championships on Sunday at Cary Tennis Park.

Crowley completed her journey across one of the best fields in team tennis with a 6-3 6-2 victory over LSU’s Kylie Collins on a Carolina Blue Sky morning in the stadium.

Crowley joins Jimmy Loeb as the only two players in UNC women’s tennis history to win the ITA All-American Singles Championship. Loeb won the event as a freshman in 2013 when she won 11 games over nine days in Pacific Palisades, California.

Ranked 21st in the ITA pre-season rankings, Crowley is at 12-0 this fall and is now 89-8 in her collegiate singles career. For context, Loeb was 84-9 in her impressive two-year career at Tar Heel.

The San Antonio, Texas, producer has only lost one set in its five games this week, the opening set of a quarterfinal match with Texas A&M Marie Stoiana. She knocked out three players from the Southeastern Conference – second seed Sarah Humner of South Carolina in the round of 16, and number 58 Stoiana and seed 24 Collins in the finals.

Crowley had to face his teammate and ranked 28 Carson Tanguelleg In the semi-finals, the winner was 6-3, 6-3 on Saturday.

North Carolina had three of the four semi-finalists in the main draw – Crowley, Tanguelleg and Annika Yarlagada. This is believed to be the most in the event’s history dating back to 1983.

The ITA Carolinas Regional Championships kicks off Thursday and runs through Monday, October 17 in Winston-Salem, and NC Crowley, Tangguilig and Yarlagada will not compete next week after already boosting positions in the season-ending fall ITA National Championship.
