BARA SISTERS TAKE HOME CAA WEEKLY DOUBLES ACCOLADES
The VCU women's tennis team is becoming a familiar face at the CAA headquarters. For the second time in the young season, two players were recipients of the weekly award as seniors Alex and Ana Bara took home CAA women's Doubles Team of the Week accolades after splitting a pair of tough matches at the No. 1 doubles position. The honor was Alex's second in two weeks, receiving CAA Women's Player of the Week for her performances earlier this year.
This week the duo defeated the Wake Forest doubles team of Kayla Duncan and Rebecca Siegler 8-5 to clinch the win.
Nearly as impressive was the doubles team's performance against Duke, the other ACC opponent VCU women's tennis faced last week. The Bara's didn't go quietly, battling the 18th-ranked doubles combo of Beatrice Capra and Rachel Kahan until the end, falling 9-8 (7-5).
Bara and Bara, who are ranked #42 nationally, are looking to continue the chemistry they have built up on March 10 when they face Temple at 10a.m.
