Florida State junior Alida Gallovits and freshman Samantha Schoeffel cruised to two-set victories at No. 1 singles over Georgia Tech’s Debbie Reynolds and Jaime Wong, respectively. Seminole senior Nanette Duxin battled with Tech freshman Kristen Roberson and pulled out a 7-6 win in the first set and then rolled to a 6-1 victory in the second set to claim the victory for FSU.

Georgia Tech lost two tough three-set matches. Sophomore Mysti Morris fell, 2-6, 6-4, 5-7, to Jessica Balbuena at No. 3 singles. Tech sophomore Mason Miller won her first set, defeating FSU’s Christina Denny 6-4 before dropping the final two sets, 4-6, 5-7, at No. 4 singles.
