Lions down #42 Augusta University!

Augusta, GA – The Emmanuel College Women's Tennis Team traveled to Augusta University this Friday to play another NCAA Regional Match.

Determined to start the dual match well, the Lady Lions kicked off the event with 2 solid wins in doubles and coming up just short to open a 3-0 lead.

At #1 Fantine Botella found no problems in her singles match and gave EC another point. The sophomore Pearllan Cipriano quickly followed Botella and put Emmanuel a point away of winning the match. Augusta reduced the difference but Emmanuel was still leading the dual 4-3 with two courts left to be finished. After a long match, Chloe O'Connor clinched the win for the Lions in a tight 3 set win after seeing her opponent taking a 3-0 lead in the decisive set.

This is the first time Emmanuel Women's Tennis was able to defeat a NCAA Nationally ranked team.
EC Tennis will be back in action tomorrow, where they will serve as host to Georgia Southwestern. First serve is scheduled for 2PM!
