COLUMBIA, S.C. – The 22nd-ranked South Carolina women’s tennis team held off 39th-ranked Harvard 4-2 in a non-conference match at the USC Indoor Tennis Center on the USC campus Monday afternoon.

Carolina improves to 5-1 with their second win over a Top 40 opponent this season. Harvard falls to 2-3.

The Gamecocks won the doubles point behind wins in two of the three matches. The 36th-ranked team of Lynn-Yin Tan and Jodi Kenoyer rallied from a 6-5 deficit to beat Harvard’s Courtney Bergman and Susanna Lingman, 9-8(3), to claim the point for Carolina. USC has now won the important point in each of their first six matches of the season. Carolina got an earlier win at No. 1 doubles as 26th-ranked Jennifer Radman and Kathy Boyanovich overpowered Harvard’s 48th-ranked duo of Alexis Martire and Sanja Bajin 8-3.

Needing only three singles wins to claim the match, USC got what it needed with a key three-set win by Kenoyer. The junior from Lighthouse Point, Fla., rallied to down Fleur Broughton 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 for the team match clinching win. Kathy Boyanovich got the winning started for USC, beating Alexis Martire 6-3, 6-0. 71st-ranked Jennifer Radman also scored a key singles win, topping Harvard’s 102nd-ranked Sanja Bajin in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.

South Carolina returns to action Saturday when they travel to Raleigh, N.C., to face the N.C. State Wolfpack.
