No. 3 Tech Tennis Looks to Rebound Tuesday Against No. 15 Vanderbilt

March 6, 2006

ATLANTA – The third-ranked Georgia Tech women’s tennis team, 7-2 on the season following a 4-3 loss to No. 6 Northwestern this past Saturday, looks to rebound this Tuesday when they host the 15th-ranked Vanderbilt Commodores at 2 p.m.

Vandy enters the match with a 10-1 record on the season after recording a pair of victories over SEC rivals Alabama and Auburn this past weekend. The Commodores won the last match between the two teams, 7-0, and have won six-straight over the Yellow Jackets since Tech earned its first and only victory against Vanderbilt on March 3, 1989. Overall, Vandy leads the series, 8-1.

In Tech’s last match, the Jackets overcame illnesses to four key players to tie the match against sixth-ranked Northwestern, 3-3, but couldn’t pull out the victory, as rookie Christy Striplin was forced to retire after suffering from severe leg cramps in the second tiebreaker of her three-set match at No. 6 singles.

Following Tuesday’s match, the Yellow Jackets will return to action this weekend when they continue conference play against Virginia Tech (Saturday, 11 a.m.) and Virginia (Sunday, 11 a.m.). Tech is 1-0 in conference play this season following a 4-3 victory over 22nd-ranked Clemson this past week.
