Alicea, Lacasse Open NCAA Play Tuesday

For the first time since 2013, a Nebraska women’s tennis duo has been selected for the NCAA Tournament as Samantha Alicea and Raphaëlle Lacasse will compete next weekend at the 2023 NCAA Championships in Orlando, Fla.

Senior Alicea and junior Lacasse had a standout regular season tallying a 16-1 overall mark and a 10-match winning streak. Their lone loss came against Purdue’s Tara Katarina Milic and Liz Norman, but in the rematch later in the season the Husker team prevailed. Most recently, the pair recorded a ranked win against Ohio State’s No. 1 doubles team in the Big Ten tournament and finished the season with a 7-1 conference record.

The NCAA doubles field is made up of 32 teams with competition beginning on Tuesday, May 23, and an official bracket will be released Sunday, May 21.
