Feb. 8, 2009
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University women's tennis team was defeated 5-2 by James Madison on Saturday afternoon at the Army-Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va. Sophomore Maxi Thiels (Atlanta, Ga./The Lovett School) won her two matches in singles and doubles action to help the Hoyas jump out to a 2-0 lead, but the Dukes rattled off five consecutive points to take the match.
Doubles was won in impressive fashion for the second day in a row by the Hoyas as Alex Sebia (Plains, Pa./Scranton Prep) and Aileen Shea (Great Falls, Va./The Potomac School) clinched the point. The duo trailed 7-5, but after Shea won a long service game with the score tied, they went up 8-7 and eventually closed it out.
Thiels was the only Hoya to win in singles action with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over JMU's Anna Khoor. Caroline Kuehn (Birmingham, Ala./Mountain Brook) took her match to three sets at No. 3 singles, but fell 4-6, 7-6(5), 2-6 and Sebia took the first set of her match to an 11-9 tiebreak before losing the second set, 6-2.
The Hoyas return to the court this Wednesday when they play cross-town rival George Washington at 2 p.m.
