Jackets Continue Michigan Invitational

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – A weather-shortened day forced action to move to the Travis Pointe Country Club on day two of the Michigan Invitational on Saturday. The No. 20-ranked Georgia Tech women’s tennis team was able to play one round of singles against No. 14 Ohio State.

A winter storm that rolled through Michigan overnight caused a power outage at the Varsity Tennis Center as teams were finally able to take the courts late in the afternoon at the Travis Pointe Country Club. Kate Sharabura took Audrey Spencer to a super tiebreak in her singles match. After dropping a tough opener, 7-5, Sharabura cruised in the second set, 6-1. It was a back-and-forth battle in the super tiebreak that Spencer pulled out, 10-7, for the match.

Meera Jesudason also battled to a super tiebreak in her match against Alessia Cau. Jesudason took the first set, 6-4, but Cau squeaked out the second set, 6-4. In a nail-bitter of an extended super tiebreak, Cau was able to secure the win, 11-9.

The Michigan Invitational concludes on Sunday with the final rounds of doubles and singles.
