Rychagova named consolation champion at ITA All-American
PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Kansas junior Anastasia Rychagova was named champion of the main draw singles consolation bracket after a victory Sunday at the Riviera ITA Women’s All-American in Pacific Palisades, California at the Riviera Tennis Club.
Facing Oklahoma’s No. 19-ranked Lily Miyazaki in the final consolation match, No. 35-ranked Rychagova defeated the Sooner, 6-2, 7-5, to earn the title.
“Words really won’t do Nas (Rychagova) or what she has accomplished much justice,” said assistant coach Caroline Lilley. “The way she competed, her willingness to make adjustments and play bold under pressure, and her unwavering resiliency are nothing short of admirable. She came here wondering if she belonged on this stage and she is leaving knowing she absolutely does. She has chosen to focus on the process of daily development and I couldn’t be happier for her.”
