COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Gamecock women’s tennis team is set to compete at the UVa Invitational beginning Friday in Charlottesville, Va. The tournament consists of three 16-person flights of singles and three flights of doubles with eight teams in each.

In the B flight, Adriana Pereira will square off with Lucy Dougherty from UNC Greensboro, and Rita Maisak will play Marlen Mesgarzadeh of William & Mary.

In doubles, Stojic and Jocic will take on Molly Scott and Mary Beth Winingham from Dartmouth in flight A. Maisak and Pereira play Marshall’s Kristina Koprcina and Kara Kucin in the B flight.

Pereira went 2-1 in singles and doubles playing with Maisak. Maisak and Stojic had 1-2 records for singles, while Stojic was 2-1 with Josefin Andersson as her partner. Jocic did not play doubles in Nashville.
