She will face Ohio State’s Paloma Escobedo in the quarterfinals.   After narrowly beating Notre Dame’s Chrissie McGaffigan in the third round (4-6,6-3,7-6 (1)), Mimi Nguyen of Michigan (right) is set up to face third-seeded Maria Mosolova of Northwestern.

In the second half of the draw, it will be teammate against teammate as Wildcats Brittany Wowchuk, who upset No. 4 Shannon Matthews in the third round, will play Kate Turvy, while Wolverines Brooke Bolender and Denise Muresan are on opposite ends of the court for the quarterfinals.

The doubles has already been decided with Northwestern Wildcats Linda Abu Mushrefova and Nida Hamilton took the trophy with a 9-7 victory over Illini Rachael White and Allison Falkin.
