CARY, N.C. - After a slow start, the Purdue women’s tennis team rebounded, placing ‎in a doubles main draw and picking up five singles wins.  ‎

Boilermaker pair of junior Jenny Rabot and freshman Mara Schmidt knabbed third place in their ‎doubles main draw, beating Rachel White and Allison Falkin (Illinois) 8-4. The two were knocked ‎out of the hunt for the title by Antonia Foehse and Mary Anne Macfarlane of Alabama who ‎placed second. ‎

Rabot and Schmidt also claimed victory on the singles courts, along with teammates Anna ‎Dushkina and Bhavani Tirumurti. Rabot cleaned out Talyor Marable (Princeton) 6-1, 6-1 while ‎Schmidt took out North Carolina’s Jennifer Stone 6-3, 6-4.
