UK’s Home Win Streak Snapped by Bulldogs

uk tennis women 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (3/21/14) — The No. 28 University of Kentucky women's tennis team was dealt its first home loss of the season Friday afternoon against the University of Georgia.

Georgia, ranked No. 3 in the nation, blanked the Wildcats, 4-0, and snapped Kentucky's 11-match win streak at home.

In a tough doubles competition, the Wildcats fell short of the point. Georgia claimed wins at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles to clinch and lead Kentucky, 1-0. No. 36-ranked Kate Fuller and Silvia Garcia held off Kentucky duo Kelsey Dieters and Aldila Sutjiadi for a win at No. 2 doubles. In a challenging match at the No. 1 position, seniors Caitlin McGraw and CeCe Witten chipped away at a 5-2 deficit, but it wasn't enough to top No. 21-ranked Maho Kowase and Lauren Herring. The Georgia pair won, 8-6, and gave Georgia the early advantage.

Singles play was just as demanding for Kentucky as Georgia won three matches to sweep the Wildcats. No. 33 Lilly Kimbell defeated sophomore Kirsten Lewis, 6-2, 6-2, to expand the Bulldogs' lead to 2-0. A victory over Edmée Morin-Kougoucheff by No. 12 Silvia Garcia at the No. 4 singles slot put the red and black within one point of securing the match. No. 10 Lauren Herring clinched the match at the No. 1 singles position to send Georgia home with another conference win.

Kentucky falls to 14-5 for the season and 4-3 in conference play. The Wildcats will be back in action, Sunday, March 23, 2014 at the Hilary J. Boone Varsity Tennis Center to take on the No. 47-ranked Tennessee Volunteers.

The match will begin at 12 p.m. ET.
