BLACKSBURG, Va. – The No. 16 Georgia Tech women’s tennis squad fell to No. 31 Virginia Tech on Friday by a score of 4-3, their first loss since Feb. 28 at Northwestern. The loss dropped the Jackets to 7-2 in conference play and 12-6 overall.
Georgia Tech went up 3-0 early in the match, taking the doubles point and receiving a pair of victories from Paige Houringan and Alexis Prokopuik. However, Virginia Tech went on to claim four straight victories to clinch the match.
“We were outplayed today,” head coach Rodney Harmon said. “Virginia Tech played well and took control of the momentum of the match. We were up 3-0 at one point, but could not get that last point. Tough one today, but we must get ready for another tough match on Sunday versus Virginia.”
The Jackets’ next match will come Sunday at 11:00 a.m. at No. 12 Virginia.
