DALLAS- Georgia State women’s tennis took down No. 31 Kansas State 4-3 on Saturday in Dallas. The win elevated the Panthers to 7-7 on the season and was the first of a four game stint in Texas for GSU.
The Panthers dropped the doubles point and lost number six singles to a walkover putting them down 2-0 in the match, but battled back to win four of the five singles matches. Senior Kristin Rehse got things started with a 6-1, 6-4 straight set win, her ninth singles win of the year.
Rehse’s win was followed up by a straight set win from junior Lara Vovk (6-3, 3-6, 6-4) in the five slot and a three set victory from freshman
Elizabet Danailova (7-5, 6-3) in the two position.
The Wildcats would tie the match at 3-3 before Damira Muminović sealed up the win for Georgia State. The sophomore from Bosnia dropped the first set 6-4, but battled back to take the next two 6-3, 6-2 and the victory for GSU.
“I think we came together as a team really well today”, said coach Jason Marshall. “We knew we right away we were down 2-0 and had nothing to lose. We just kept believing in ourselves and believing that we are a great team.”
The Panthers will look to use the momentum from Saturday’s big win as they stay in Dallas to take on SMU tomorrow afternoon. GSU will take on the Mustangs at 1:00 p.m.
