CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Mary Cardone posted a historic season, as she became the first player in Southwestern women's tennis history to qualify for the NCAA Championship.

Cardone completed her first collegiate season with a 20-1 overall record. She was named SCAC Player and Newcomer of the Year for her efforts, while leading the Pirates to a second straight appearance in the league's championship match.

Trinka moves on to compete in the Round of 16, which will take place at 1 p.m. Thursday.
