Junior Bridget Harding was crowned the ITA Oracle Cup Division III National Champion on Saturday afternoon at the Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex in Surprise, Arizona.
Harding becomes just the sixth ITA Division III Champion in program history and the first since teammate Michelle Satterfield in 2013. Harding now advances to the ITA Oracle Cup Semifinals, joining Division II's Madeline Hill of Washburn, NAIA's Camille Gbaguidi of SCAD and JUCO's Maria Medina of the State College of Florida.
Harding also becomes just the third Eagle to capture ITA DIII national titles in both singles and doubles in the same year, joining Mary Ellen Gordon (2002) and Gabrielle Clark (2012). Harding and senior Katarina Su won the Division III championship on Friday, defeating Johns' Hopkins Ashnaa Rao and Mikey Barthlemass.
