No. 18 Women's Tennis Earns Victory over Virginia

March 30, 2002

Jaime Wong, Catherine Gunn, Laura Ozolins, Sekita Grant and Fallon Koon won singles matches to lead 18th-ranked Georgia Tech to a 5-1 victory over Virginia in Atlantic Coast Conference women’s tennis Saturday at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.

Due to the inclement weather, the match was played indoors, and the teams elected to play singles first. With the match decided following singles play, doubles were cancelled.

With the win, Tech improved to 12-6 overall, 2-3 in the ACC, while Virginia falls to 10-4 overall, 1-1 ACC.

Wong defeated Jennifer Tuchband at No. 2 singles, 2-6, 6-2, 6-1, while Gunn downed Amy O’Donnell, 6-4, 6-3 at No. 3 singles. Ozolins knocked off Dora Bechliwanis at the No. 4 flight, 7-5, 6-1, Grant defeated Marta Bechliwanis, 4-6, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 5, and Koon recorded a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Christine Kim at No. 6 singles.

The Cavaliers’ lone win was at the No. 1 flight, where Henrietta Willliams defeated Mysti Morris, 6-2, 6-4.
