PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – LSU’s Rocio Fantilli and Lauren Seaman lost Friday in their consolation match in the Riviera/ITA All-American Championship tournament to the eighth-ranked duo in the nation.
Fresno State’s Chloe Carlotti and Lucia Tallo beat Fantilli and Seaman, 8-3. It was Fantilli and Seaman’s second loss in as many days in the second biggest tournament in college tennis. The pair received a bye to the main draw, a distinction given to just eleven teams in the country.
Fantilli and Seaman, ranked 38th in ITA’s fall preseason poll, competed together for the first time this season Thursday.
The Lady Tigers travel west again next week to Fort Worth, Texas for the ITA Southwest Regional tournament.
