Women's Tennis Faces Tough Test at ITA Southeast Regionals
ATLANTA - The Georgia State women's tennis team will face tough competition from the best players from Georgia and Florida this weekend at the 2013 ITA Southeast Regional Championship. The five day tournament will take place at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga.
Six Panthers are in the main singles draw. Maryna Kozachenko, Masa Grgan, Marcia Tere-Apisah, Linn Timmermann and Chaimaa Roudami are all in the main draw, alongside senior Abigal Tere-Apisah. Abigail Tere-Apisah is the only Panther to be seeded, as she is the No. 3 singles player in the draw. Georgia State also has one player, Tarani Kamoe, in the Singles B Draw.
In the doubles main draw, Tere-Apisah and Grgan are seeded second. The Panthers also have two other pairs in the main doubles draw, Kozachenko/Roudami and M. Tere-Apisah/Kamoe.
"The team is ready to get back out and play this weekend and we are excited to compete against the best teams in Georgia and Florida," interim head coach Robin Stephenson said. "Although this is an individual tournament, we are looking for the girls to continue growing as a team and each match we play is an opportunity to get better. The format for regionals is great because every player has the opportunity to step up and have individual success and any time we can have individual success it makes the team stronger."
