Women's Tennis Falls at Georgetown
Washington, D.C.- Beset by injuries, a short-handed UMBC women's tennis team fell, 6-1, at Georgetown on April 10.
Junior Josefin Stange-Jonsson (Vasteras, Sweden) continued her outstanding spring, with victories in both singles and doubles competition. She picked up UMBC's lone point of the day, rallying from a rough start to defeat Liz Hamlin, 2-6, 6-3, 6-1.
Stange-Jonsson and freshman Madlena Kuracz (Zlotoryja, Poland) was convincingly, 8-3, at No. 2 doubles over the Hoyas' duo of Jaeger/Comoli. But UMBC dropped the No. 1 doubles match, and with only five healthy competitiors, the Retrievers had to default at No. 3 and concede the point.
Kurasz and classmate Julia Sauer (Aschaffenburg, Germany) fought valiantly, but each dropped three-set decisions at Nos. 5 and 3 respectively.
UMBC plays its final home regular season match of the 2013 when they host America East rival Binghamton on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
