Generette, Shankle Earn NCAA Doubles Championship Bid

INDIANAPOLIS - Baylor women's tennis players Kiah Generette and Blair Shankle have been chosen to take part in the NCAA Doubles Championship starting May 25 in Tulsa, Okla.

The NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Subcommittee made the announcement Wednesday that the twosome was one of 21 at-large selections into the 32-team doubles draw. This is the third-consecutive season that the Bears have a doubles team in the NCAA draw.

The NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships will be held at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center May 25-30 in Tulsa, Okla., following the conclusion of team championship play.

Generette, a senior, and Shankle, a junior, are 16-6 overall and 12-5 in dual-match action. The pairing went 5-1 in Big 12 action and boast a 6-4 record against ranked foes. In the latest ITA rankings, the BU pairing was ranked No. 17.

Shankle has earned ITA All-America doubles honors in each of the past two years, advancing to the quarterfinals last season with partner Ema Burgic, after making the 2014 quarterfinals with partner Victoria Kisialeva.
