Cruz Victorious at College Ranked Spotlight

CARY, N.C. – Forced to play inside due to inclement weather, Georgia Tech women’s tennis played two sessions of singles action on the third day of the College Ranked Spotlight on Saturday.

Alejandra Cruz collected a win in the back draw in straight-sets to prove victorious on the day. Facing Ohio State’s Teah Chavez, Cruz won a hard-fought tilt against the Buckeye, taking the first set, 7-5. In a battle for the second set, Cruz sealed the match in a tiebreaker, 7-6 (7-2). In her second match of the day, Cruz challenged NC State’s Maddy Zampardo, but dropped a 6-1, 6-1 decision.

The Yellow Jackets came up short in the A-1 draw as Mahak Jain dropped a pair of matches to a pair of higher ranked opponents, while Kylie Bilchev fell to Michigan’s No. 24 Kari Miller, 6-3, 6-4. Carol Lee faced off against Miami’s Isabella Pfennig, falling 6-3, 6-2.

The final day of the tournament takes place on Sunday with the final sessions of both singles and doubles.
