Columbia, S.C. – The 24th ranked University of South Carolina women’s tennis team ended their three match skid by taking a 5-2 victory against Tulsa on Tuesday at the USC indoor facility. The Gamecocks improved to 9-4 overall while the Golden Hurricanes dropped to 6-8 overall.

On court one, Kathy Boyanovich and Magda Wojdylo dropped their match 8-5 to the 48th ranked doubles team of Alicia Pillay and Aleksandra Durska. The doubles point would finally come down to court three.
