    SAN DIEGO, CALIF. -- In their first season as Trojans, USC's Brynn Boren and Zoë Katz have teamed up to great success as the two Women of Troy are bound for tomorrow's doubles title match at the ITA Southwest Regional Championships. Senior Boren and freshman Katz will do battle against a pair of Bruins tomorrow at 9 a.m. in San Diego.

    USC had three doubles duos in today's semifinals, but senior transfer Brynn Boren had the busiest day of the bunch. She had a singles semifinal bout also on her docket today, falling to UCLA's Chanelle Van Nguyen to shift her focus solely to doubles play. Boren and Katz had the difficult duty of squaring off against teammates Giuliana Olmos and Zoë Scandalis in the doubles semi, but Olmos/Scandalis pulled out of the draw due to injury. That pushed Boren/Katz on through to the final, where they'll face No. 4 seeded UCLA pair Brady/Harrison. That team had bumped USC's top-seeded Kaitlyn Christian and Sabrina Santamaria out of the draw with their semifinal win, leaving Boren and Katz as the lone Trojans in action tomorrow.

    Boren and Katz are looking to follow in the footsteps of two Women of Troy whom they never had the pleasure of playing alongside at USC. Last year, seniors Danielle Lao and Valeria Pulido paired up to win the 2012 ITA Southwest Regional doubles crown.
