WASHINGTON – The Georgetown women’s tennis team (7-8, 1-2 BIG EAST) dropped a neutral site, non-conference matchup on Friday afternoon to the James Madison Dukes (9-3, 1-1 CAA) by the score of 4-3. The match was moved from James Madison’s home site to the Arlington YMCA in Arlington, Va. because of inclement weather earlier in the week.

The Hoyas came into the match having won their previous six matches, a streak that started with a 6-1 win over Montana State on Feb. 22 and continued with three wins on a road trip to southern California before they defeated Richmond and Providence last weekend.

Saperstein dropped James Madison’s Taylor Pinchoff, 6-2, 7-5, in straight sets for her third-straight No. 1 position victory. The freshman is 5-2 since taking over in the No. 1 spot which coincided with the beginning of Georgetown’s winning streak on Feb. 22.

Senior co-captain Madeline Jaeger (Laguna Beach, Calif./Laguna Beach) also won her third-straight match when she defeated Rachel Nelson of James Madison in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, from the No. 3 position.

Georgetown freshman Sophia Barnard (Mill Neck, N.Y./Portledge School) improved to 7-8 with a No. 4 position win over James Madison’s Emily Bradshaw, 6-2, 6-2. The freshman has won six of her last seven matches for the Hoyas.
