Women’s Tennis Completes First Day of Fall Ranked Spotlight

Raleigh, N.C. – South Carolina women’s tennis completed their first of four days of competition at the Fall Ranked Spotlight in Raleigh, N.C on Thursday. The first day of competition began at NC State and consisted of four doubles sessions.

Matches were played as one standard set, no-AD, with a tiebreak at 6-6. During the first session of the day, both Gamecock doubles pairs fell by a margin of 6-2.

The Gamecocks managed to close the gap some in their second matches of the day but still dropped both competitions. No. T-60 duo Sarah Hamner and Ayana Akli nearly forced a tiebreak but dropped their match by a narrow 7-5 margin after their opponents earned a late break. Elise Mills and Ana Cruz dropped their second match by a close 6-4.

The Fall Ranked Spotlight will continue tomorrow in Cary, N.C., at the Cary Tennis Center with two rounds of singles starting at 9 a.m.
