LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Irish senior Lindsey Green was victorious in the consolation semifinals Saturday of the National Collegiate Tennis Classic. Green, the only Notre Dame player competing in the first event on the Irish spring schedule, defeated UNLV’s Agnieszka Abram 7-5, 6-4. The consolation final, originally scheduled for Sunday, will not be played. Green has won four of her last five matches, dating back to the fall season.
