As the weather continues to heat up, so does the women’s tennis team. The Eagles defeated Division I George Washington University 5-4 in the team’s first outdoor match of the season. Wednesday’s match was the only time the Eagles have faced a Division I school this season. Emory will play Division I Wofford College (S.C.) in April. The Eagles came into the match ranked No . 7 in the nation and No. 3 in the Atlantic South Region.

The Eagles jumped out to an early lead of 2 - 1 after the doubles matches.


Although Dawson and McManigle have only played together twice this season, the duo has won both of its matches  and it is clear to see that chemistry is developing.

“We played junior tennis together before college and I’m comfortable with her as my partner,”  Dawson said. “I think we have a lot of promise as a team.”

Freshman Laura Callava provided the story of the day in the singles matches. With No . 4 singles player Kirsten Hillock a late scratch due to illness, Callava stepped up and provided the spark the Eagles needed.

“She wasn’t planning on playing but when she went in she cruised,”  Head Coach Amy Bryant said.


The Eagles will now turn their focus to the Fab Five Tournament, which will be held at Emory. The tournament will bring  11 of the nation’s top teams to Atlanta to compete against each other and should provide good insight into where the Eagles are heading.

“We are still getting to that point where we are going to peak,&. dquo; Bryant said. “We are still working. We need more fire in our bellies and need to learn how to grind it out when the match calls for i t.”
