WEST POINT, N.Y. – The Quinnipiac University women's tennis team wrapped up competition in the USTA/ITA Northeast Regional Tournament on Saturday afternoon at the Lichtenberg Tennis Center in West Point, N.Y. Senior Rachel Cantor (Short Hills, N.J.) was the lone qualifier for the Bobcats in the Main Singles Draw.
Cantor squared off against Marcela Rosales of Drexel University in the round of 128 of the bottom bracket. In a three-set thriller, Cantor was upended 6-0, 6-7 (3), 7-5, and eliminated from the tournament.
