Champaign, Ill. - The college career of senior Nini Lagvilava (Tbilisi, Georgia) came to a close as the two-time reigning America East Player of the Year fell to Michigan's Ronit Yurovsky, 7-5, 6-1, in the first round of the NCAA Individual Championship at Illinois Wednesday.

Despite the loss, Lagvilava finished her illustrious career with nearly 80 singles victories, a school record. She became the first Seawolf to reach the Division I Individual Championship by virtue of finishing the season ranked in the top 125.

Lagvilava and Yurovsky traded early breaks, but Yurovsky surged ahead, holding serve to go ahead 6-5 and eventually winning the first set.

Lagvilava cut Yurovsky's second-set lead to 4-1, but Yurovsky won the next two games to clinch the first-round victory.
