Maryland women’s tennis kicked off its fall season as they participated at the Columbia Invitational and four Maryland players made it to the finals.

Senior Vera Markovic and Miami transfer Selma Cadar qualified for the finals while University of Delaware transfer Jojo Bach and freshman Francesca Feodorov both left New York with titles.

Feodorov was the first Terp of the weekend to win a singles title. She started the weekend with a 7-6, 6-1 win over Camil Ordonez from St. John’s and then defeated Columbia’s Carolyn Brodsky 6-3, 6-7, 10-1 to secure a spot in the finals. Feodorov won her first title as a Terp defeated Sophie Raiszadeh in the finals, 6-0 in the first set before Raiszadeh retired.

In her first match of the weekend and her first as a Terp, Bach defeated Cornell's Fatima El Ashram, 6-2, 6-1. Following her first victory, she went on to defeat Syracuse’s Miyuka Kimoto with a 6-7, 6-3, 10-5 victory. In the finals, Bach defeated Amanda Chan from Penn 7-6, 6-7, 10-1 to secure the victory.

The Terps' next set of matches will be in College Park on Sept. 24-26 as the Bedford Cup.
