NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt women’s tennis will compete at the ITA Ohio Valley Regional Championships beginning Thursday in Murfreesboro.

More than 8,000 student-athletes from NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, Junior and Community Colleges compete in the ITA Regional Championships. In Division I, regional doubles and singles champions and finalists qualify for the ITA National Fall Championships, which will take place in San Diego, California, beginning on Nov. 4.
