I was super impressed to see Pepperdine make the finals (indoors no less) without Stefani. Definitely now a top contender for the NCAA's in May. They also played without Failla, the transfer from USC.UNC beats Pepperdine 4-2 to win indoors again. They are very deep and healthy.
Impressive run by Pepperdine, though, playing indoors, which is foreign to them, and without #1 Stefani, who was playing Fed Cup for Brazil. They could easily be NCAA champs in May, if they keep this up.
Apparently both Elyse Lavender (current #1 for LSU) and Brooke Austin from Florida are no longer on their teams, and Arconada is still awaiting NCAA clearance, so why not play another $25K in Surprise this week, lol. Very curious as to what happened to Austin and Lavender...
I wonder if Arconada will become eligible mid-way through the season and then play a handful of matches? So strange. It's pretty shocking that Austin is no longer with Florida. Hopefully more news comes out soon and all is well with her.
