No. 8 Tech Drops First ACC Match of Season, 4-3 to No. 16 Duke

April 16, 2005

ATLANTA – Parker Goyer won a three-set match at No. 6 singles to give No. 16 Duke (14-6, 5-4 ACC) a 4-3 victory over No. 8 Georgia Tech (15-3, 8-1) Saturday afternoon at the Bill Moore Tennis Center. The loss snapped a 10-match win streak for the Yellow Jackets and was a first vs. a conference opponent this season.

“I thought that Duke played well today, competing extremely well throughout the match, even after dropping the doubles point,” said Georgia Tech head coach Bryan Shelton. “We competed well also, but just fell short today.

Goyer came back after dropping her second set to win 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 against Whitney McCray.

“I thought it was good experience for Whitney to be on the court in the last match,” said Shelton. “I think that will only help her in the future. We will just have to rebound and get ready for tomorrow.”

The Yellow Jackets took a 1-0 match lead when Lyndsay Shosho and Dasha Potapova won, 7-5, in a tiebreaker at No. 2 doubles to help Georgia Tech capture the doubles point against Duke’s Tory Zawacki and Clelia Deltour, 9-8 (5).

Tech’s Kelly Anderson and Whitney McCray earned the first doubles victory on the afternoon, defeating the Blue Devil’s combo of Saras Arasu and Parker Goyer, 8-5, at the No. 3 position before Duke’s Kristin Cargill and Jackie Carleton downed No. 15 Kristi Miller and Alison Silverio, 8-6, setting up Shosho and Potapova for the clinching doubles match.

Duke tied the score at 1-1 with a 6-3, 6-4 win by Zawacki at No. 5 singles before Potapova gave the Yellow Jackets a 2-1 edge with a 6-3, 7-6 (4) win over Arasu in the No. 2 slot. A 6-7, 6-1, 6-1 win by Duke’s Deltour tied the match at 2-2 before the Blue Devils took a 3-2 match lead with a three-set victory by Cargill at No. 4 singles.

No. 14 Kristi Miller won an 8-6 tiebreaker in her second set against No. 111 Jackie Carleton at the top singles slot to win 7-5, 7-6 (6) and tie the match at 3-3, setting up No. 6 singles as the deciding match on the afternoon.

The Yellow Jackets will return to action tomorrow (Sunday) when they host the 13th-ranked Tar Heels from North Carolina at 11 a.m. Georgia Tech will honor lone senior Dasha Potapova prior to the match, as she will be playing in her final regular-season match at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.
