Knoxville, Tenn. – Led by wins from senior Mysti Morris and freshman Annelies Schenk, the Georgia Tech women’s tennis team wrapped up play at the St. Mary’s Fall Classic in Knoxville, Tenn., at the Goodfriend Tennis Center.
Morris was the first Yellow Jacket winner of the day, as she picked up a three-set victory over NC State’s Myrna Bawono in the finals of the consolation draw of singles flight one. Morris struggled in the first set as she dropped the frame by a 6-1 count, but rallied over the next two sets. Morris won a tight 7-5 second set before rolling to a 6-2 victory in the final set.
Schenk finished third in the flight four draw, as she was as straight-set winner over Purdue’s Laura Burgerello. She won the first set by a 6-3 score, before rolling to a 6-2 victory in the second set.
Other Yellow Jackets in the field included junior Sekita Grant, who was unable to build on a first-set win over Kentucky’s Shannon Stough, and dropped a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 decision in the flight two consolation final. Tech rookie Lyndsay Shosho lost in straight sets to Maryland’s Andrea Fusea by scores of 6-2 and 6-4, while junior Maria Nieto lost to Purdue’s Missy Wright in the consolation final of flight five by matching scores of 6-3, 6-3.
Georgia Tech will return to action as a team on October 18-20 at the Vanderbilt Invitational, while senior Jaime Wong and sophomore Catherine Gunn will be competing at the ITA All-American qualifier in Pacific Palisades, Calif., beginning on Tuesday.
