AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn women’s tennis squad gave the South Carolina Gamecocks all they could handle in Nos. 3 and 6 singles, but it was not enough to overcome USC Sunday, March 21, at the Luther Young Tennis Complex.

The Gamecocks defeated the Tigers by a final count of 7-0.

“We played really well after playing an emotional match Friday,” said Carolina Head Coach Arlo Elkins. “I’m really proud of the girls for their effort today. I look forward in to keeping this up next week as we face Tennessee and Georgia.”

In doubles, Ashley Cowart and Isabel Rosenbrock came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the USC duo of Ayako Suzuki and Magda Wojdylo 9-7 in No. 3 doubles. The Gamecocks secured the doubles point with 8-5 victories on courts 1 and 2. Danielle Wiggins and Laura Ganzer defeated Petra Bercik and Carolina Ramirez in No. 1 doubles to clinch the point for USC.

In singles, both Rosenbrock and Nancy Peaden rebounded from losses in the first set to force a third set against their opponents. However, both lost in the third sets to give USC the shutout victory. Rosenbrock fell to Ganzer by a final count of 6-4, 2-6, 6-3, in No. 3 singles. Peaden was defeated 6-1, 4-6, 6-3, by Justine Walsh in No. 6 singles. Christyn Lucas secured the match victory for the Gamecocks with her 6-4, 6-4, victory over Ramirez in No. 2 singles.
