Georgia Women’s Tennis: Bulldogs fall to Pepperdine in NCAA Tournament


Georgia women's tennis

Just as the men’s team did on Thursday, the Georgia Women’s Team dropped the doubles point to fall behind 1-0 in their NCAA Tournament match.

The No. 5 Bulldogs were playing No. 12 Pepperdine but like the Georgia men’s team, the Bulldogs rallied back in singles, tying the match at 3-3. It would all come down to court No. 1 between Georgia’s Ellen Perez and Pepperdine’s Luisa Stefani in a third set.

But unfortunately for Perez and the Bulldogs, they couldn’t pull of the victory, as Perez lost 6-7,  6-2, 6-2. The Bulldogs ended up dropping the match to Pepperdine 4-3. The loss ends the Bulldogs season and prevents a  potential quarterfinals match with Vanderbilt, who beat Cal 4-1.

Georgia finishes the season with a 19-6 record. Athens is the host site for the men’s and women’s tournaments.

The Bulldogs picked up points on courts No. 3, 4 and 6.  Kennady Shaffer won on court No. 3, picking up a 6-2,6-3 win. Caroline Brinson won her match 6-2, 6-3 over Lauren Gulbe on court No. 4 and Mariana Gould won 6-4, 6-3 on court No. 6.

The Bulldogs dropped on courts No. 2 and 5, as Elena Christofi and Marta Gonzalez both lost in straight sets.

Perez, Christofi and Shaffer can still win individual national championships, as they will all participate as individual’s in the singles portion of the tournament. Two doubles pairing from Georgia will also be competeing for the indivdual doubles title. Perez will play with Brinson and Christofi is paired with Shaffer.
