SAN DIEGO, CA – At the 2023 ITA National Fall Championships, the singles and doubles semifinalists have now been determined after another action-packed day at the Barnes Tennis Center.

With many matchups between highly ranked players and teams on the day, seeded players found much success on the day with every semifinal matchup featuring at least one seeded player and or team across all four draws. North Carolina (women), TCU (men), and Oklahoma State (women) all have representatives in both the singles and doubles semifinals tomorrow.

In singles, Ayana Akli (South Carolina) reached her second major ITA Championship semifinal (ITA All-American Championships) of the fall, continuing her dominant run of play to begin the 2023-24 season. The other semifinalists feature Reese Brantmeier (North Carolina), Ange Oby Kajuru (Oklahoma State), and Emma Charney (USC) who all had impressive wins on the day.

On the men’s side, the semifinals will feature three of our top eight seeds as Jack Pinnington Jones (TCU) [5-8], Micah Braswell (Texas) [3], and JJ Tracy (Ohio State) [2] will join Jack Anthrop (Ohio State) in the final four.

Across doubles, the men’s second-seeded team of Cash/Tracy (Ohio State) fell to Gorzny/Vives (TCU) [5-8] to mark the first time since 2018 that an Ohio State doubles team will not reach the finals. Joining Gorzny/Vives in the semifinals will be Bouchelaghem/Zharyn (Washington), Baris/Sheldon (Michigan State) [3], and Van Schalkwyk/Van Schalkwyk (Old Dominion).

For the women, the top-seeded duo of Brantmeier/Scotty (North Carolina) [1] took care of business in today’s match as they look to make it three straight years in which a Tar Heel pair has made the finals. Joining Brantmeier/Scotty will be Guzman/Shcherbinina (Oklahoma) [4], Kajuru/Komar (Oklahoma State) [5-8], and Broadus/Tjen (Pepperdine) [2].

Play continues tomorrow from the Barnes Tennis Center as the quarterfinals begin along with the second round of the singles and doubles consolation draws. Action will begin at 11 a.m. (PDT) with singles taking to the court first with doubles to follow. All of the action can be watched on the Cracked Racquets YouTube Channel and all of the stats will be on iOnCourt.
