New Orleans - Tulane's senior doubles tandem of Caroline Magnusson and Caroline Thornton saw their run in the 2012 Riviera/ITA All-American Championships come to an abrupt end this afternoon with an 8-4 loss to Duke's Ester Goldfeld and Annie Mulholland in the second round of qualifying doubles.

At the Riviera Tennis Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Magnusson and Thornton advanced to the second round after knocking off Santa Clara's Jessica Agra and Katie Le in the first round, 8-4, on Tuesday.

Today, Magnusson and Thornton came up short to the Duke duo, which upset Texas A&M's second-seeded team of Cristina Sanchez and Cristina Stancu in the first round.

The Green Wave will take a week off before returning to action at the Southern Regionals, Oct. 19-22, in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
