COLUMBIA, S.C. — No. 29 South Carolina women’s tennis earned a split in its third doubleheader of the spring on Saturday at the USC Field House. Undefeated Georgia State rallied to pick up a 4-3 victory over the Gamecocks, before Carolina rebounded in impressive fashion with a 4-0 sweep of Charlotte. With the split, the Gamecocks are off to a 6-2 start for the third-straight season.

Georgia State struck first in the opening match as it took doubles wins at courts one and two to grab the early 1-0 lead. Georgia State senior Linn Timmermann and junior Tarani Kamoe claimed a 6-4 win at court one over junior Caroline Dailey and sophomore Hadley Berg, while the Panther tandem of Niri Rasolomalala and Kristin Rehsi held off Gamecock freshmen Ingrid Gamarra Martins and Ellie Zogg, 7-5, on court two. For South Carolina, freshman Rachel Rohrabacher and sophomore Megen Cochran put together an impressive 6-0 victory at court three.

Carolina came out hot in singles, taking the first set in all six matches, before Georgia State battled back on courts one, four, five and six to send four matches to third sets. Dailey and Timmerman fought to a third-set tiebreak, where Dailey rallied from down 6-3 to up 7-6. She was unable to close it out, however, falling 11-9. Folland fell in her third set, 6-1, after nearly closing it out in the second set, where she fell in a tiebreak, 7-3. Rohrabacher lost, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1, at No. 5, while Cochran fell, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 at No. 6.

In the afternoon session, the Gamecocks quickly took control of the match and never let up. The Garnet and Black jumped out to a 1-0 lead with doubles wins at one and three. Berg and Dailey coasted to a 6-3 win at No. 1, while Martins and senior Ximena Siles Luna cruised to a 6-1 win at No. 3.

Much like the first match, the Gamecocks won the first set on each court. This time, however, they pushed the momentum into the second set and on to the victory. Berg shined once again with a 6-1, 6-0 victory at No. 3 to move to 7-0 this spring and 13-2 this season. Martins, ranked No. 110 in singles, grinded out a 6-0, 6-2 win at No. 1, and junior Brigit Folland sealed the victory with a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 4.

Quoting Coach Kevin Epley

“In the first match today, we got outfought. We’ve been in this place before, and we’re going to turn it around. The issue we have is the competition gets tougher, it doesn’t get weaker. The urgency we need to operate with is exponential.”


  • South Carolina dropped the doubles point for the first time this season against Georgia State.
  • No. 50 Paige Cline was out of the lineup in both matches as she is recovering from concussion-like symptoms.
  • Sophomore Hadley Berg, playing for the first time at No. 3, moved to 7-0 this spring and 13-2 overall this season.
  • Freshman Ingrid Gamarra Martins moved up in the lineup and played at No. 1 and 2 for the first time in her career, notching wins in both spots.
  • Freshman Hannah Templeton was written into the singles lineup for the first time this season against Charlotte, but did not record a result.
