Saturday, in the first round, Craig defeated third-seeded Allison Falkin of Illinois 6-2, 6-4, while fellow Ute Najera-Salas fell to Alyssa Hibbert of Memphis, 6-3, 6-4. Craig then netted a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Mississippi State's Alexandra Perper in the second round. Craig returned Sunday in the third round, downing Hanna Yu of Yale 1-6 in the first set, but ultimately wasn't able to take the next two sets, dropping a 7-5, 6-0 decision.
