Williamstown, Mass. – Trinity College women's tennis junior captain Melita Ferjanic (Samobor, Croatia) fell to Aandrita Deb of Tufts, 2-6, 6-2, 6-4, in a three-set thriller in the third round of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) New England Division III Regional Singles Championships at Williams College Saturday afternoon. The fifth-seeded Ferjanic lost to ninth-seeded Deb after a dominant performance during day one of the event.
Seeded No. 5 in the 64-player field, Ferjanic allowed just three total points in a pair of straight-set victories in the opening two rounds yesterday. Bantam rookie Vanja Babunski (Belgrade, Serbia) made her collegiate debut Friday with a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Rena Liu, of MIT, but retired while down, 5-2, in the opening set of her second-round match.
