Emory University freshman Bridget Harding was 2-0 in both singles and doubles matches last weekend, helping to lead the second-ranked Eagles to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III Championships. Harding played in the fourth singles match and second doubles match with partner Katarina Su in each of the two contests during the weekend. After receiving a first-round bye, Harding did not drop a game on Friday in a 5-0 Eagles’ win over Webster University, winning 8-0 in doubles and 6-0, 6-0 in her singles match. She also claimed two key wins in Emory’s 5-2 win over the 12th-ranked Sewanee, winning 8-2 in doubles action and 6-1, 6-1 in the singles match. Harding has won nine-straight singles matches and is a team-best 24-4 this season, while going 18-7 in doubles play, including a 9-0 record with Su. The Eagles, now 18-3 on the season, will advance to the NCAA quarterfinals for the eighth-straight season and the 25th time overall.
