Emory University freshman Bridget Harding went undefeated for the top-ranked Eagles in both singles and doubles play, while facing three nationally-ranked teams at the Fab 5 Tournament in Lexington, Virginia last week. The Eagles opened the week with a 7-2 win over 10th-ranked Washington & Lee University, with Harding teaming with Katarina Su to earn an 8-2 win at third doubles, and later claiming a 6-3, 6-0 win at fifth singles. On Saturday, in a 6-3 loss to third-ranked Williams College, she accounted for two of the Eagles’ points with an 8-4 win at third doubles and a 6-2, 7-6 (3) victory at fifth singles. Harding and the Eagles bounced back to win 8-1 over 14th-ranked DePauw University on Sunday, with the freshman claiming an 8-6 win at second doubles and a 6-0, 6-1 win at fourth singles. With the perfect weekend, Harding improved to a team-best 18-4 in singles matches this season, and to 12-7 in doubles contests. The Eagles are 11-3 in 2015.
