LUBBOCK, TEXAS — South Carolina women’s tennis defeated UC Santa Barbara 4-1 in the consolation match of the ITA Kick Off weekend after falling to No. 21 Arizona State in the first round.

The Gamecocks opened with a battle for the doubles point, winning two of the three. Senior Hadley Berg and sophomore Paige Cline quickly dismissed their opponents, winning 6-1 in less than 35 minutes. Brigit Folland and Caroline Dailey fell 2-6 on court two leaving the duo of sophomore Rachel Rohrabacher and Mia Horvit to battle for the doubles point in the No. 3 spot. The pair came back from a 2-4 deficit to tie it up at 6-6 and ultimately win the tiebreak 7-4.

In singles, the bottom of the lineup gave the Gamecocks an early 3-0 lead. In the No. 5 spot, Folland claimed a 6-2, 6-3 victory. Berg followed suit at court six, taking out her opponent 6-4, 6-1. The Gauchos took a point in the No. 1 spot with Horvit falling 4-6, 0-6. Chinellato clinched the match in a three-set win on court four, rallying from a 3-6 loss in set one to win the second and third 6-1.

Quoting Coach Kevin Epley

“I’m very happy with how we responded to yesterday’s lost. We set a goal yesterday to make little changes through doubles, and I think overall we did a great job of adjusting and taking care of business. I think we were a little more assertive and played more our game in doubles, particularly at No. 1. In key spots people played better and took care of the things we talked about this morning. Overall it was a good match. USCB is a very strong team so we’re happy to leave today with a victory.”
