ATLANTA (March 28) — The 27th-ranked Georgia Tech women’s tennis team looks to snap a three-match losing streak as the Yellow Jackets host a pair of Atlantic Coast Conference matches against 61st-ranked Virginia Saturday and unranked Maryland Sunday. Matches begin at 11 a.m. at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.
Tech enters the week with a record of 10-5 overall, 1-3 in the ACC. Both Virginia and Maryland are winless in the ACC this season.
Despite two tough ACC losses last weekend to Duke and North Carolina, the Jackets have been getting strong play from freshman Jaime Wong (Delray Beach, Fla.) at the No. 4 singles spot. Wong has won six of her last seven singles matches, including a 6-0, 6-0 shutout of Western Michigan’s Melanie Remynse, improving her record to 12-3 in dual match play. Sophomore Laura Ozolins (Toronto, Ontario), also with a dual match record of 12-3, has provided the Jackets with consistent wins at the No. 6 singles spot.
Georgia Tech has continued to struggle in doubles play, but has seen stronger play from the team of senior Sabrina Pardo (Aix En Provence, France) and junior Bobbi Guthrie (Raleigh, N.C.) at the No. 1 flight. After two wins last week, the pair improved their record to 8-5.
