April 20, 2013
WASHINGTON - The seventh-seeded Georgetown University women's tennis team (15-7) won a BIG EAST Championship back draw match against twelfth-seeded Providence 4-1 earlier today in Tampa, Fla. The Hoyas did not get to play the Friars during the regular season after the match was cancelled in early March.
Georgetown now plays for ninth place in the tournament on Sunday, April 21, at noon against ninth-seeded Cincinnati. The match will be played on USF's Andros Courts.
Team captain Victoria Sekely (Mississaga, Ontario/Lone Park Secondary School) won her fifth BIG EAST Championship singles match of her career on court one, 6-2, 6-1, against Aviles-Duron. She also teamed with Elizabeth Hamlin (Haverford, Pa./The Episcopal School) in doubles on court one and won the deciding doubles match 8-2. Hamlin won her singles match on court five, 7-5, 6-2, against the Friars' Bernardez.
The Hoyas took two doubles matches to capture the first point. Kelly Comolli (Newburyport, Mass./Philips Exeter Academy) and Madeline Jaeger (Laguna Beach, Calif./Laguna Beach) were first off the court at second doubles with an 8-1 victory.
Closing the match out for GU was freshman Taylor Perz (Gibsonia, Pa./Pine-Richland) in a three setter, defeating PC's Foley 6-4, 2-6, 6-1.
