GREENVILLE, S.C. – On the final day of the Debbie Southern Furman Fall Classic, Georgia Tech’s Victoria Flores claimed the singles title of flight five as the Yellow Jackets collected three wins to wrap-up the tournament.
“Overall, this weekend was a great tournament to see where we are at right now,” commented head coach Rodney Harmon. “Furman does an excellent job hosting this event and the competition was very high again this year.
