First up on the day for the Devils was the top-seeded Laila and Nadia Abdala who took on the USC duo of Lyndsay Kinstler and Alison Ramos in the quarterfinal round, but the Women of Troy proved to be no match for the wily Sun Devils to rolled to an 8-3 win to set themsevles up for a semifinal match-up against the fourth-seeded USC team of Gabriela Niculescu and Maria Sanchez who they'll face tomorrow at 9:00 a.m.

The second-seeded team of Kelcy McKenna and Micaela Hein also came out strong in their match, as they took an 8-4 win over the nine-seed duo of Cristala Andrews and Amanda Fink, also of USC in the quarterfinals to find themselves slated to face Long Beach State's Hannah Grady and Stephanie Jeanes tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. with a trip to the finals on the line as well.

The Sun Devils will return to action in the ITA West Regional Championships tomorrow where they'll look to advance in both the Doubles Main Bracket and Singles Consolations brackets.
