Achong and Richardson Headed to NCAA Title Match

The train keeps on chugging! Daevenia Achong and Eden Richardson beat the Oklahoma State duo in straight sets 7-6, 6-2 to reach the Finals of the 2022 NCAA Doubles Championship. This is the third finals berth in program history. The last coming in 1988.

“We talk about it all the time that anything is possible. We know how good Eden and Daev are, but to be able to be here and work themselves through the tournament, beating some of the competition that they’ve beaten along the way, it just makes me so happy,” Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. “They’re great kids, they’re good tennis players. They’ve stayed truly together as a team this entire season; they’ve been very supportive of one another. They’ve been incredible leaders in singles and as team players for this team this year. They’re truly a huge reason why we had the success we had. So, to see them enjoy the individual success now, I think, is a nice moment for them. Let’s try to end it the right way.”

If Achong and Richardson want to complete this run with a National Title, they will have to go through the top overall seed in the tournament, the NC State duo of Jaeda Daniel and Nell Miller. Finbals are Saturday afternoon.
