NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Annie Menees won at No. 1 doubles and clinched the match with a straight-set victory at No. 5 singles to help sixth-ranked Vanderbilt (9-1) to a 7-0 win over No. 23 Georgia Tech (5-2) Saturday afternoon at the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Tennis Center in Nashville, Tenn.

Menees recorded a 7-5, 6-2 win over Yellow Jacket junior Lyndsay Shosho to clinch the Commodores ninth dual-match win of the season.

Caroline Ferrell and Amanda Taylor captured the point for the Commodores with an 8-6 victory over Kacie Anson and Dasha Potapova at the No. 3 slot.

Ferrell put the Commodores up 2-0 in the match with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Whitney McCray in the No. 6 singles slot and Taylor gave Vanderbilt a three-point edge with a 6-3, 6-4 victory against Silverio at No. 4 singles.
