Normal, Ill. -Thursday, the Illinois State women's tennis team sent Emmie Marx to the ITA Regional Tournament to compete for a regional title in singles. The ITA Regional Tournament is held in Champaign, Ill and is hosted by the University of Illinois.

Marx had a first round bye and advances to the second round of play to face the winner of Lauren Burich of Wisconsin and Jullane Gruber of Michigan State. Marx's match begins at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Marx came onto the team in the 2011-12 season like a firecracker, posting an overall record of 14-9 in singles play as a freshman. At the end of the season, Marx was elected to the Missouri Valley All-Select team for her efforts.

This season, Marx started off the season playing relentless tennis, and holds notable in wins in several tournaments. Marx played especially well in both the Ball State Invitational and the Redbird Round Up in September, securing first and second place victories in the top flight.

At the DePaul Invitational, Marx did not fare as well, falling short of the winning precedent set for herself earlier in the season. Most recently, Marx competed at the MVC Individuals Championships. After advancing to the semi finals on day one of the competition, Marx finished fourth in her flight.
