W&M's Faure advances to ITA region semis

William and Mary senior Marie Faure ousted top-seeded Francesca Fusinato of Virginia Tech 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) to advance to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Atlantic Regional semifinals at Old Dominion.

Faure, who grew up in France and transferred from Virginia, faced Cassie Mercer of U.Va. on Tuesday. The other semifinal will pit Virginia Tech's Natalie Novotna against Marshall's Derya Turhan.

Maryland seniors Kristina Hovsepyan and Alexandra Stanova took the doubles championship in thrilling fashion.
