Final Stats

THE FLATS – The #28-ranked Georgia Tech women’s tennis team (7-6, 4-3 ACC) fell at home to #17 Clemson (15-3, 7-0 ACC), 6-1, on Friday afternoon at the Ken Byers Tennis Center.

“Clemson played well and we played better than we have been playing but we still have a ways to go,” head coach Rodney Harmon said. “We have to prepare for a tough match on Sunday against N.C. State. We can hopefully build a little on the success we had and play even better on Sunday.”

Senior Muriel Wacker was the lone Yellow Jacket to tally a point against the Tigers. Wacker took on Jessy Rompies on court five. After being edged in the first set 7-6 (7-4), Wacker came back to win set two, 6-3. She kept her momentum going in the tiebreaker, winning 1-0 (10-6).

In the beginning of the match, the doubles duo of Wacker and sophomore Natasha Prokhnevska were the first to finish, recording an 8-2 victory against #78-ranked Tristen Dewar and Romy Koelzer on court two. Wacker and Prokhnevska are now 6-6 this season.

On court three, freshmen Rasheeda McAdoo and Alexa Anton-Ohlmeyer suffered an 8-3 loss to Jessy Rompies and Yuilynn Miao, leaving the fate of the doubles point on court one.

The number four ranked doubles team of sophomores Megan Kurey and Kendal Woodard fell to #26-ranked Beatrice Gumulya and Yana Koroleva, 8-2, at the number one spot, putting the Tigers up, 1-0, heading into singles play.

It was on court one where the Tigers took a 2-0 lead, thanks to a 6-3, 6-1, victory for #46 Koroleva against Woodard. At the number four spot, Anton-Ohlmeyer faced Rompies. Rompies took set one, 6-4, before winning set two, 6-2.

A win from #111 Gumulya, 7-6 (8-6), 6-1, against Kurey clinched the match for Clemson and handed the Jackets its third conference loss.

After falling to #93 Dewar in set one, 6-4, McAdoo rebounded in set two to win 6-2. During the tiebreaker, McAdoo battled from being down 5-1, but eventually lost the tiebreaker, 10-5 at the four spot.

Prokhnevska fought her way to a 7-5 win in set one against Kolzer on court two before Kolzer won the next two sets, 6-1, 6-4.

The Yellow Jackets are back in action this Sunday when they host #64 N.C. State at noon at the Ken Byers Tennis Center.
