No. 17 Tech Women's Downs No. 32 Wake Forest, 4-3

March 12, 2005

Winston-Salem, NC – Lyndsay Shosho recorded a three-set victory at No. 5 singles to clinch a 4-3 match victory for No. 17 Georgia Tech (9-2, 3-0 ACC) as the Yellow Jackets defeated No. 32 Wake Forest at the Leighton Tennis Stadium in Winston-Salem Saturday afternoon.

“This was a huge win for our program,” said Georgia Tech head coach Bryan Shelton.  “Down 3-1 in the match and then after dropping the first set in all three of the remaining singles matches to see our team come back was just amazing to me.”

After dropping the doubles point to begin the day, Dasha Potapova, Kristi Miller, Alison Silverio and Shosho all recorded singles wins to give Tech its third ACC victory of the season.

Miller, ranked 24th in the nation, made quick work of Wake Forest’s Karin Coetzee, defeating the Demon Deacons top singles player, 6-2, 6-0. The win by the Yellow Jacket rookie gave her sole posession for most singles victories in a season in the Georgia Tech annals, with a total of 31 this year.

Silverio dropped the first set at No. 4 singles to Kati Martzolf, 1-6, but came back with 6-4 and 7-5 marks in the next two sets to give Tech its second point of the afternoon.

The 94th-ranked Potapova dropped her first set tiebreaker but came back with 6-3, 6-1 wins in the final two frames to set up Shosho for the Yellow Jacket victory.

Shosho battled to tiebreakers in each of her first two sets, splitting each, before blanking Jenna Loeb, 6-0 in the third set at the No. 5 position to cap the 4-3 match win.

Georgia Tech will continue this weekend’s tour of Tobacco Road by traveling to Raleigh to take on the NC State Wolfpack in a match that is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
