LAS VEGAS – The Duke duo of senior Chalena Scholl and sophomore Kaitlyn McCarthy played deep into the doubles main draw of the Freeman Memorial Championships in Las Vegas, Nev., before their run came to an end in the semifinal round Sunday afternoon. Scholl and McCarthy’s result concluded the three-day event for the Blue Devils.

Scholl and McCarthy reached the semifinal round after opening the tournament with a 6-4 victory over Florida’s Brooke Austin and Spencer Liang Friday afternoon. One day later, Scholl and McCarthy returned to action and defeated Stanford’s Caroline Doyle and Melissa Lord, 7-5. In the semifinal round, Scholl and McCarthy faced North Carolina’s Jessie Aney and Hayley Carter and suffered a 6-2 setback. The result on Sunday moved Scholl and McCarthy’s record as a doubles team to 7-4.

In addition to Scholl and McCarthy, senior Alyssa Smith and freshman Meible Chi also took the courts for doubles action, competing against Stanford's Emily Arbuthnott and Taylor Davidson. The Duke tandem was unable to close out the tournament with a victory, falling, 6-2.

The Blue Devils are slated to open the dual match season Wednesday, Jan. 25, welcoming Elon to Durham, N.C., for a 3 p.m. contest. The event will be held in the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center and admission to the event is free.
