A consistent performer in the middle of the lineup for the Cats...

Notched straight-set wins over Claudia Castro of Ohio State and Tara Reid Arkansas in back-to-back 5-4 UK victories... Battled tough in the Rolex Regional Indoor before falling in three sets to 34th-ranked Janet Bergman of Wake Forest in the second round... Joined Rookledge at mid-season to bring stability to the No. 3 doubles spot, finishing 10-3... The tandem clinched a dual match win for the Cats at Indiana by crushing Amanda Field and Jennifer Hsia 8-1... Notched 9-8 come-from-behind victory at Tulane over Maiko Cook and Anneli Axsater to give UK a narrow 5-4 victory.
