LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (March 8, 2017) – The North Carolina A&T women’s tennis team ended their spring break competition on Wednesday with a 6-1 loss to Georgia Gwinnett.

The Aggies, who dropped to 2-9 on the season, had one player win in singles as freshman Kanishka Chawla won at No. 5 with a straight set, 6-2, 7-5 win over Rebeca Scurt. Chawla improved to 3-6 overall on the season. Chawla’s win was a nice accomplishment considering GGC is 14-0 and ranked No. 1 among all NAIA teams. The day started with Angelica Martinez losing to Margarida Abreu 6-0, 6-0. Junior Khalia Powell then lost to Alyona Vasilyeva at No. 1 singles, 6-1, 6-4. Freshman Klara Smolikova dropped a straight set 6-3, 6-3 march to Debora Scurt.  Junior Nadia Hilton-Adams had an entertaining match against J. Van Fraaijenhoven at No. 4 as she won the first set 7-6 before losing in a tiebreaker.

The Grizzlies won all three doubles matches to earn the singles point. Margarida Abreu and Emerald Able started doubles competition with an 8-0 win over Chawla and Sheyla Ramirez. Powell and Hilton-Adams teamed up at No. 1 and Martinez and Smolikova came together at No. 2 but both Aggie duos lost.

N.C. A&T returns to action 1 p.m., Thursday when they travel to Boiling Springs, N.C., to face Gardner-Webb.
