WASHINGTON - Seventh-seeded Georgetown University (14-7; 3-3 BIG EAST) lost to 10th-seeded University of Pittsburgh earlier today in the first round of the 2013 BIG EAST Women's Tennis Championship. The Hoyas fell 4-1 to the Panthers in Tampa, Fla. at University of South Florida's Varsity Courts. GU's now moves into the consolation bracket to face either 12th-seeded Providence or 13th seeded Connecticut on Saturday, April 20, at 9 a.m.

The Hoyas jumped to an early 1-0 lead by winning the doubles point. Elizabeth Hamlin (Haverford, Pa./The Episcopal School) and Victoria Sekely (Mississaga, Ontario/Lone Park Secondary School) won the deciding match 8-3 against Pitt's number one team of Washington and Lu. It was the eighth doubles win of the season for Hamlin and Sekely.

GU's number two duo of juniors Kelly Comolli (Newburyport, Mass./Philips Exeter Academy) and Madeline Jaeger (Laguna Beach, Calif./Laguna Beach) recorded GU's first doubles win of the day 8-2, the seventh win of the season for the combination.

Unlike the regular season matchup between Georgetown and Pittsburgh when GU won four singles matches to earn the team win, the results flipped in the BIG EAST Championship with Pitt winning four.

Pitt's Lu started the Panther comeback with a 6-4, 6-1 over Comolli on court two. The next three singles results all went the full three sets but Georgetown was unable to win any of the three. At number one, Sekely was looking for her fifth career singles win at a BIG EAST Championship and battled back from a set down but ultimately fell 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 to Washington. Jaeger on court three also had to fight back from a first set deficit but could not finish off the third set and lost 6-4, 0-6, 6-4 to Pitt's Borza.



The deciding match played out on court six between freshman Taylor Perz (Gibsonia, Pa./Pine-Richland) and Pitt's Parbhu. Perz won the first set 6-2 but could not secure the second, losing 7-5, before dropping the final set 6-4.

Sophie Panarese (Milton, Mass./Milton Academy) and Hamlin also saw action in singles on courts four and five, respectively, but their matches did not finish due to Pittsburgh locking up the match with four singles wins.
