KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Amherst's doubles team of Jordan Brewer and Gabby Devlin earned a ticket to the women’s doubles semifinals by defeating Sewanee sisters Jenny and Lindsey Liles 6-1, 6-0 in straight sets.
In singles play, Brewer opened the day with a decisive 6-2, 6-2 against Emory’s Beatrice Rosen, the Atlantic South region’s seventh-ranked player.
The semifinals pitted familiar foes as Brewer drew Lok-Sze Leung of Middlebury. Losing 6-3 in the first set, Brewer fell 7-5 in the second, closing out the season with a 19-9 overall record. Of those nine losses, four came to Leung, who earned a consecutive berth into the singles finals after finishing as the runner-up a year ago.
In doubles play, Brewer and Devlin scored a resounding 6-1 first-set triumph against Sewanee’s duo. The Jeff duo then took the first two games of the second set en route to a 6-0 shutout. Now 20-4 on the year, Brewer and Devlin advanced to face Emory’s Gabrielle Clark and Annette Sullivan, who defeated the Jeff tandem (8-6) just days earlier in the teams’ championship semifinal match.
