Baylor’s Generette, Shankle Fall In NCAA Doubles Second Round

TULSA, Okla. - The Baylor women's tennis duo of Kiah Generette and Blair Shankle were knocked out of the NCAA Doubles Championship with a second round loss to UCLA’s Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips Friday at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.

The 20th-ranked BU tandem were unable to upset the seventh-ranked Bruin pairing dropping a 6-1, 7-6(2) decision.

After falling behind 5-0 in the first set, the Bears were not able to salvage the opening set. In the second set, Generette and Shankle took a 6-5 lead, but then Shankle was broken to force the set into a tiebreaker. In that tiebreaker, the Bears fell behind 4-1 and went on to lose it 7-2 to drop the match.
NOTABLES

  • The BU duo closes the year 17-8 overall on the season and 7-6 against ranked foes.
  • This was the third straight season in which a BU duo has advanced past the first round of the NCAA Doubles Championship.

TOP QUOTE
Credit to the Bruins. They played very well beginning to end. Kiah and Blair started off slow, but gave themselves an opportunity to win the second set. I'm proud of their effort and willingness to find a way to win. They just fell short of All-American honors, but it wasn't from a lack of effort. They have given it their best this entire season.” - head coach Joey Scrivano on the match

WHAT’S NEXT
The loss concludes the 2015-16 season.
