DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia women's tennis team suffered a 9-0 loss to the No. 1 team in the country on Sunday afternoon, falling to Armstrong Atlantic at the Yahoola Creek Tennis Complex in Peach Belt Conference action.
The Lady Saints fall to 7-11 overall and 2-9 in the Peach Belt Conference, while the Lady Pirates clinch a share of its eighth straight PBC regular season title with the victory, improving to 20-0 overall and 11-0 in league play.
North Georgia dropped all three doubles matches, winning single games at the No. 1 and No. 2 slots, while Audrey Marlette and Matilda Watson captured a pair of games but fell 8-2 at the hands of Kathleen Henry and Joanna Szymczyk at No. 3 doubles.
