LAS VEGAS - The University of Utah women's tennis team saw two of its three doubles teams advance in the second round of doubles competition Thursday at the USTA/ITA Mountain Regional Championships at the Fertitta Tennis Complex. The two duos are slated to compete in the third round of doubles this weekend, while singles competition will continue Friday, weather permitting.

"We are moving in the right direction," said head coach Mat Iandolo. "Tomorrow is a big day for us with some excellent singles match ups."

Utah's 13th-seeded duo of redshirt junior Paige Miles and sophomore Tereza Bekerova topped Nevada Reno's Sophie Stevens and Sheila Smiley, 8-4. Fourteenth-seeded junior Sarah Pham and sophomore Natasha Smith then bested Christina Molina and Natasha Rizvi of Air Force 8-3 to conclude the Utes' two victories. Finally, Utah's third-seeded pair of juniors Callie Craig and Elena Najera-Salas suffered an 8-4 upset to Montana's Laurance Pelchat and Heather Davidson.
