FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Feeling right at home, Shannon Hudson earned her second singles victory of the Arkansas women's tennis fall season on Saturday, as the Virginia Beach, Va., native advanced to her flight final at the William & Mary Tribe Invitational.

With select Razorbacks competing at the tournament held in Williamsburg, Va., Hudson continued her impressive debut weekend of collegiate tennis, as the freshman won again by battling it out and defeating Wake Forest's Andrea Retolaza Andrade, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5.

"Today was a high quality day of tennis here," head coach Michael Hegarty said of the William & Mary Tribe Invitational. "All matches were close and Shannon's three and a half hour battle was a great example of toughness and quality coming through in the end. It will be fun for her to play for a tournament title tomorrow."

Hudson advances to play against Bridget Folland of USC in the final of the Julie Shiflet Flight on Sunday.

Also competing at the Tribe Invitational was teammate Sarah McLean. The junior from Miami took USC's Dominika Kanakova three sets before eventually falling, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.

Playing in Little Rock, Ark., on Saturday for the Razorbacks was Brittany Huxley, who topped Alyssa Hibberb of Memphis, 6-2, 6-1, for her first win of the fall season.

Flavia Araujo and Kimberley - Ann Surin joined forces for doubles play, defeating Despoina Vogasari and Maria Andrea Cardenas of Houston, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5. Yang Pang and Huxley lost their first doubles match to Oklahoma's Hermon Brhane and Morgan Chumney, 4-8, but came back with a win over Skylar Kuykendall and Alyssa Hibberd of Memphis, 8-6.

Araujo, Pang and Surin also took part in singles play, but each fell in their respective matches.
