WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University women's tennis team fell to Georgetown, 4-3, on Sunday, Feb. 13, in a non-conference match at the McDonough Tennis Complex on the GU campus. Each side won three matches in singles play, but the doubles point proved to be the difference for the Hoyas.
Juniors Anastasia Skavronskaia (Miami, FL) and Sandra Simunic (Westerville, OH) teamed together at No. 1 for the Colonials and the tandem defeated Elizabeth Winokur and Stephanie Cohen, 8-2, for GW's lone win in doubles play. The Hoyas were victorious at the second and third spots to claim the doubles point.
Skavronskaia was also solid in singles play as she earned a straight set 6-4, 6-3 win over Winokur at No. 1. At the No. 3 spot, freshman Kendall Swenson (Shaker Heights, OH) continued her stellar play by defeating Liddy Bartell in three sets, 3-6, 6-2, 6-1, for her third win of the season. Notching the Colonials' third singles point was senior Sevla Gonca (Ankara, Turkey), who topped Sana Malouf, 7-6(1), 6-3, at No. 6 for her first singles win of the spring campaign.
GW (1-2) is back in action on Thursday, Feb. 24, when it hosts Atlantic 10 member Richmond at 1:00 p.m. at the Montclair Country Club in Montclair, VA. The match was originally scheduled for Jan. 30, but was postponed due to inclement weather.Georgetown 4, GW 3
