Women's Tennis - Thu, Apr. 24, 2014
Georgetown College women's tennis blanked their quarterfinal opponent, punching a ticket into Friday morning's semifinals at Lackey Tennis Center. The Tigers, receiving votes in the national poll, beat the sixth-seed Bluefield Rams for the second day in a row. The team from Virginia defaulted at No. 3 doubles and No. 5 and 6 singles, putting GC up 3-0 before it started.
All you need is five wins to secure the match and No. 1 & 2 doubles took care of business for the Orange & Black. Georgetown won 5-0 and plays Campbellsville University at 11 am Friday.
"We played Bluefield in the final match of the regular season and won 9-0 so I was pleased with how my players came out and maintained focus," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "It is easy to make things more interesting than they need to be sometimes on opening day of the tournament. Now we have a very tough Campbellsville team on which to focus."
Natalie Hill and Jacqueline Otis handed Rebecca Havens and Casey Germain an 8-2 setback. Shelby Eden and Alyssa Kennedy also won 8-2 over Sierra Queen and Alison Morgan.
The win runs the Tigers record to 15-3 on the season.
Between the women's and men's matches, the conference announced All-Academic honors and All-Conference teams. Hill, Otis and Kaelin Roberts earned second team for the women. Gustavo Echeverria was second team for the men. Academically, earning a 3.25 or better as a sophomore or higher, Georgetown had Hill, Eden, Kelly Swanson, Chris Bartlett and Ryne Least receive the honor.
