WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – Eudice Chong '18 went two-for-two on Day 3 of the ITA Regional Championships, capturing both the singles and doubles titles to earn All-American honors for her fourth straight year.  

Alongside Victoria Yu '19, the duo rolled through the doubles draw, winning the final 6-1, 7-6(5) over Julia Cancio and Juli Raventos of Williams. 

In singles, Chong faced her toughest competition of the week in the semifinals, where Raventos gave her everything she could handle in a match that would end with the three-time defending national champion prevailing 6-1, 5-7, 6-2. In the finals, Chong hit her stride and took the title in much more straightforward fashion, defeating Amherst's Camille Smukler 6-1, 6-0.

With the wins, Chong and Yu earned places in the ITA Oracle Cup, hosted by Berry College in Rome, Georgia on October 11-15. The tournament will feature all of this weekend's ITA Regional Champions, with the winners earning a berth at the Oracle ITA Fall National Championships in Indian Wells, California.
