ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The University of Notre Dame women’s tennis team saw its 2023-24 season come to a close at the Varsity Tennis Center in Ann Arbor. The Fighting Irish battled with the third ranked Wolverines, forging ahead early, but couldn’t hold off one of the top teams in the country. The Irish finished the regular season 18-10 overall, tying the most wins in a season since the 2016-17 season. 

How It Happened

After falling at No. 2 doubles, the pairing of Carrie Beckman and Julia Andreach tied up the doubles results with a 6-3 upset win over the ninth-ranked tandem of Jaeden Brown and Kari Miller. No. 3 doubles decided the opening point. The Michigan pairing tied the match at five before Nibi Ghosh and Yashna Yellayi took the next two sets. Yellayi hammered home an overhead to put the match away and give the Irish the early advantage. 

Michigan took control of the match during singles action. Andreach dropped just her second match of the season, falling to ninth-ranked Kari Miller at the top flight, 6-3, 6-1. No. 5 singles put the Wolverines ahead before Page Freeman tied it back up. Freeman tallied a 6-3, 6-4 win at No. 2 to even the match. Both flights four and six went into the third set. Akari Matsuno earned a 6-2 win to start the match but fell 6-2, 6-3 over the next two as Michigan took the clinching point and the victory.
