THE FLATS – The #51 Georgia Tech women’s tennis team (5-5, 2-2 ACC) fell short in its match against #14 Miami (9-2, 5-0), 6-1, on Sunday afternoon at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex.

“We had a tough one today against a really good Miami team,” head coach Rodney Harmon said. “I felt like we had some performances from Megan and I thought that Alexis played pretty good tennis. I thought that we fought, but they just outplayed us today and played at a higher level than we did. We have to have a good practice tomorrow and get ready for a tough FSU team on Tuesday.”
