Back on March 15, the Vanderbilt women’s tennis team lost a match 4-3 at Mississippi State. That was the last loss of the regular season and just the third of the year for the Commodores.
Since then, Vanderbilt has won 11 in a row and now enters the NCAA Tournament needing to win six more to claim its second national title in program history. The first came in 2015, and Astra Sharma was a redshirt freshman.
Now a senior, Sharma checks in at #11 in the ITA national singles rankings — just one spot behind teammate Fernanda Contreras. Sophomore Christina Rosca is #44. Those three, plus junior Summer Dvorak, sophomore Emma Kurtz, and freshman Amanda Meyer, form a sixsome that rolled to an SEC regular season title at 12-1 and followed that up with an SEC Tournament title, and enter the tournament as the #1 overall seed and arguably the favorites to win the thing.
