    Saw them play the doubles matches yesterday against Louisville. They are solid through the lineup. They are 3-0 in the ACC with tough 4-3 wins over UVA and FSU. They won 7-0 over Louisville, although the #1 doubles team was down 5-3 when the doubles point was secured. They don’t seem as talented at the top of the lineup as the national champions were. But, they may be as good or better down at 5/6.

    Now ranked #6, but just beat #1 UNCheats on their courts for 2nd year in a row! (last year was last reg season loss for UNC...which then "beat" GT for ACC title with the help from some blatantly bad line calls on key points by one of their gals).

    It’s looking rough with Pepperdine. They won the doubles point and at #3. We have won ar #1 and #5. Three matches in third sets, we need two. We are down big at #2, down at #4, and even at #6. Need a big comeback.

    Great ending. We lost at #2 to go down 3-2. Jarlskog came back in 3rd to win 7-5 at #4, then Flores closed it out at #6. Great win against a team that beat us earlier. Elite eight!

    Lady Jackets had a great comeback win over UCLA tonight....Final 4 Bound!

    Meanwhile UGA got swept by lower seeded Stanford and is going home. Too bad, wanted to beat them again.

    Congratulations Lady Jackets!

    These ladies have a grit and determination that I would like to see become contagious in all of our sports teams.
