Women’s Tennis Opens Tournament Action – Women's Tennis — Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – For the second day in a row, action moved to the Travis Pointe Country Club due to inclement weather as No. 20 Georgia Tech women’s tennis closed out the Michigan Invitational collecting five doubles wins on Sunday. Tech played two rounds of doubles action on the final day.

Kicking off the morning, the Yellow Jackets took three of four doubles matches from No. 5 Michigan. Given Roach and Scarlett Nicholson teamed up to cruise to a 6-2 triumph over Julia Fliegner and Lily Jones, while Ruth Marsh and Mahak Jain downed Gala Mesochoritou and Bayley Sheinin, 6-4.

Also victorious against Michigan, Kylie Bilchev and Meera Jesudason took Reese Miller and Piper Charney to the wire. Knotted a 6-6, Bilchev and Jesudason pulled out the win, taking the tiebreaker, 7-5. Carol Lee and Kate Sharabura faced a top-10 team in Kari Miller and Jaedan Brown and battled to the very end. The match stood at a 5-all standstill with a tiebreak looming on the horizon, but Miller and Brown won the next two games to take the match, 7-5.

In the second set of doubles action, Tech took home a pair of wins against No. 14 Ohio State. Lee and Sharabura rebounded from a loss earlier in the day to defeat Audrey Spencer and Luciana Perry, 6-4. Jain and Marsh went undefeated on Sunday when the pair held strong for a 7-6 (5) win over Irina Cantos and Megan Basil. It was a gutsy win for the Jackets forcing a tiebreak and fighting until the last point.

Georgia Tech returns to the courts to open the dual season at UCF on Saturday, Jan. 20. First serve at the USTA National Campus is set for 11 a.m.
