Lake Nona, FL. – After two days of all-day action, we are now ever-so-closer to crowning national champions at the 2024 ITA National Wheelchair Tennis Championships as two days of play remain from the USTA National Campus.

With both team and individual championships taking place, the pool play portion of the team draw is now complete as San Diego State (1), Auburn (2), Houston (3), and Virginia Tech have all advanced to the semifinals of the team competition.

For San Diego State, Auburn, and Houston, each advanced by virtue of winning their opening two matches in pool play. Meanwhile, Virginia Tech advanced by virtue of winning the most games during their opening two matches. These four will compete over the next two days with the winners on Friday advancing to the national championship match on Saturday.

In the individual draws, we saw action across all three singles flights on Thursday. After a brief rain shower in the afternoon, players were able to complete the first round of play across all flights, with some flights wrapping up their second round of play.

As announced in the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and NCAA release in March, these two entities are again committed to further inclusion of Paralympic sports into NCAA Championships. This means that all four players in singles a flight will be off to Stillwater to crown a national champion for this flight. These players include Eric Court (Arizona), Martha Harris (Alabama), Gabe Puthoff (Auburn), and Nicholas Tijerina (Houston) who are all competing this week for seeding at the NCAA Championships.

Meanwhile, from the b and c flights, play continues to be fierce as players will be competing and earning the right to be crowned national champions this weekend in Lake Nona.

Play continues tomorrow from the USTA National Campus as the excitement continues to grow around the grounds with a Billie Jean King Cup tie between Belgium and the United States beginning just walking distance away from the ITA National Wheelchair Tennis Championships.
