Final Stats

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's tennis team traveled to Philadelphia, Pa., on Wednesday to take on the Temple University Owls. After starting strong, the Owls came back, but Georgetown battled for the 4-2 victory, improving the Hoyas to 5-1 on the season.

The match began with doubles play as the team of graduate student Liz Hamlin (Haverford, Pa./The Episcopal School) and freshman Taylor Perz (Gibsonia, Pa./Pine-Richland) picked up a win on Court 3, the doubles point then came down to Court 2 after losing on Court 1 in a tiebreaker. The No. 2 doubles pair of sophomore Sophie Panarese (Milton, Mass./Milton Academy) and junior Madeline Jaeger (Laguna Beach, Calif./Laguna Beach) battled and dramatically clinched the doubles point in a tiebreaker by the score of 14-12.

The Blue & Gray quickly picked up a singles win on Court 1 as the Owls retired the match.

After falling on Courts 3 and 5, the match was leveled at two with junior Kelly Comolli (Newburyport, Mass./Philips Exeter Academy), Panarese and Hamlin remaining in action. Panarese secured the victory to put the team up, 3-2, while Hamlin was battling on Court 6 in a third set. Trailing, 5-2, in third set, Hamlin fought back and won the match, marking the second-straight time she has clinched for the team as GU managed the 4-2 result.

"Today was another incredibly gutsy performance," said Head Coach Gordie Ernst. "It was not our best tennis, but the team found a way to win. I am very proud of the fight they bring to each and every match."

Georgetown will spend the next week preparing for a road trip to New York City to play against BIG EAST-foes St. John's and USF.
