Facing weather delays on both Saturday and Sunday, Georgia Tech’s doubles team of Ruth Marsh and Mahak Jain went undefeated on the final day with wins over Michigan and Ohio State. Kylie Bilchev and Meera Jesudason teamed up to collect a win over Michigan in doubles action, while Given Roach and Scarlett Nicholson paired together the whole weekend.
Roach and Nicholson, who made her Georgia Tech debut, opened the tournament with a doubles win over Georgia and cruised to a win against Michigan on Sunday.
In singles action, Kate Sharabura took home a three-set win over Michigan’s Bayley Sheinin to highlight Tech’s singles play. Due to weather delays, Georgia Tech only played two rounds of singles in the tournament.
