JHU tops Carnegie Mellon for ITA title for secone year in a row

GREENCASTLE, Ind. -- Top-seeded and seventh-ranked Johns Hopkins won its second consecutive ITA National Team Indoor Championship on Sunday with an 8-1 win against ninth-ranked Carnegie Mellon. Sunday's final was a rematch of last year's championship, which the Blue Jays won 5-4. Hopkins (3-0) becomes the second team to win back-to-back titles at the championship, which began in 2009.

Junior Elaine Baik and freshman Mikey Barthelmass gave the Blue Jays an early 1-0 lead with an 8-4 win at second doubles against Katie Cecil and Angela Pratt. Juniors Shannon Herndon and Stephanie Rettig pushed the lead to two as they beat Lydia Utkin and Nicholle Torres 8-1 at third. The Tartans (7-1) cut the deficit in half when Vanessa Pavia and Bryn Raschke won a hard-fought 9-8 (7) match versus senior Hailey Hogan and sophomore Sydney Lehman at first.

Hogan gave Hopkins a 3-1 lead as she was the first one off the court in singles play. She defeated Brooke Tsu 6-0, 7-6 at third for her 42nd career singles win, moving her into eighth in program history. Lehman followed with a 6-1, 7-5 win versus Pratt at second at JHU was just one point shy of the title. Freshman Amanda Austi came up big for the Jays at first with a come-from-behind win to clinch the title. After losing her first set 6-4 to Pavia, Austi dropped just one game in winning 6-1, 6-0 in the final two sets to take the win. Herndon then beat Torres 6-2, 6-1 at fifth and the lead was 6-1. Baik dropped her first set to Cecil 6-4, but was up 4-1 in the second when Cecil retired. Rettig wrapped up the win at sixth as she beat Elizabeth Martin 6-3, 6-0.
