Collins' Historic Run Stretches to Semifinals

Damielle Collins' historic postseason run will continue another day.

Collins defeated North Carolina’s Hayley Carter in three sets in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women’s Singles Championship Saturday to advance to Sunday's semifinals.

No. 32 Collins (34-10) defeated No. 7 Carter 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 and will play No. 27 Ester Goldfeld of Duke in the semifinal round.

Collins is the first Virginia women’s player in school history to play in the NCAA quarterfinals or higher during her impressive run at the tournament. Collins has defeated No. 43 Veronica Corning of Northwestern, No. 18 Annet Schutting of Cal, No. 2 Robin Anderson of UCLA and No. 7 Carter in the tournament. She has earned Virginia’s fourth All-America singles honor, joining Lindsey Hardenbergh (2011) and Julia Elbaba (2013-14).
